Robert Musselwhite and Diane Corich, owners of Curves For Women, present a cheque for $1,800 to Estella Scott, executive director of the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre. Curves, a women-only fitness and weight loss centre, raised the funds through an in-house campaign during December offering new members 50 per cent off the regular sign up fee, with half of that earmarked for the CICC. An email sent to the franchise’s corporate headquarters about the campaign raised an additional US $1,000 when it made its way to fitness chain founders Gary and Diane Heavin. The workout studio at The Strand also served as a drop-off centre for donations, collecting clothing, toys, food and other supplies for the shelter for abused women and their children. ‘We’re very appreciative of Curves for thinking of us, especially since they also received damage from the hurricane,’ said Scott. ‘The whole idea of women helping women is really a nice theme.’ CICC, which suffered extensive damage during the hurricane, re-opened it doors 20 December and is continuing an appeal for donations.
