On Saturday 23 April, Jon Perkins, who works for Stonegate Group as a Leadership Trainer, raised over £4300 for the Disaster Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal by completing 5000 kettlebell swings live in Yates, Sheffield.


Jon raised this incredible amount of money through a Just Giving page in the run-up to the challenge and through cash donations on the day itself. Jon was aiming to complete 5000 kettlebell swings across two days, but he smashed his target and completed this amazing feat in just eight and a half hours of constant swings on Saturday.


Jon Perkins, Leadership Trainer at Stonegate Group said: “I can’t believe I smashed my target! It was a huge challenge, and I am still aching! I am humbled and so grateful for everyone that came and supported me, for such a worthwhile cause. I would also like to thank Yates in Sheffield who hosted this event for me and the team who kept me fuelled up throughout the day.


“I am now looking into planning my next challenge, after a rest of course, and my next fundraising mission.”
