Leicester Charity Body Building Show

Leicester Charity Body Building Show was held at Athena for the first time this year. Organisers were looking for a larger venue to accommodate this growing event which drew huge support in sponsorship from Bodybuilding.com. With Athena’s large built in stage and in house AV set up, the show had a dramatic and professional backdrop. Organisers utilised all areas of the venue including the recently refurbished changing rooms, balcony and lounges. The show featured an opening dance performance from a local dance school, routines from a range of categories including veterans, junior bodybuilding, disability and ladies/ men overall, then came the all-important award presentations.

The essence of the event was to raise funds for a selection of charities. This year’s chosen charities included Help the Hero’s, Down Syndrome Association and Children’s Air Ambulance. The aim was to attempt to double the amount raised last year which was achieved and exceeded. Watch this space….. next year will promise to be an even bigger show!
