Competitive spirit and a huge heart

A fitness fanatic and kind-hearted competition winner passed on her good luck by helping those most in need.

Bianca Carr, a 33 year-old member of Horizon Leisure Centres, recently drove away in a new Hyundai i10 from Waterlooville Leisure Centre after winning the Horizon Gym competition.

To win the Hyundai i10 and five-year warranty, supplied by Richmond Hyundai Portsmouth, platinum members at Horizon Leisure Centres were enlisted with the challenge of signing up as many friends or family as possible as platinum members by 31st January.

Bianca, who has been a platinum member at Horizon Leisure Centres since 2014, first signed up her husband, before convincing her husband’s parents to become members. Eventually, Bianca managed to sign 13 new members up to Horizon - a mix of her family members and her friends – to triumph in the competition.

Having already been saving for a car, Bianca decided to use the £3,000 she had saved to support an orphanage in Tanzania, by buying three milk cows, ensuring that the children that live there can have fresh milk.

Carl Shear, operations manager at Horizon, said: “Bianca is not only a well-deserved winner with great competitive spirit getting all her family and friends involved but also has a huge heart for donating her savings to Tanzania.”
