Rebecca Brotherton has been a qualified Pilates instructor for over a year now, after training as a ballerina for ten years with the Royal Ballet School and Elmhurst School for Dance, and now runs Pilates classes through her business, RB Pilates. Usually, she would offer these classes in village halls and studios across the Eastbourne area, such as in the Willingdon Memorial Hall and the Zoe Pennington Dance Studio in the Chaucer Business Park in Polegate, however while in lockdown, she has been holding her classes through Zoom.

Rebecca has kindly donated a voucher to our Online Auction, which includes six classes. The winning bidder has the option to do these classes via Zoom or in person. It is a fantastic opportunity to try Pilates for the first time, or even hone your existing skills.

I recently spoke to Rebecca to find out why she has chosen to support St Wilfrid’s.

‘The hospice helped my grandad in his last few days before he died. Everyone was so helpful and he said that it was “like being in a five star hotel!” It’s nice to support a charity, but I have a personal link with St Wilfrid’s.’
