Bethany England Rewards Deserving Winner With Year Long Spa Membership Ahead Of Easter


Today, ambassador Bethany England rewarded ‘Spa A Thought’ winner Fiona with a year-long spa membership at the UK’s largest spa Pennyhill Park launched their biggest ever community-based campaign ‘Spa a Thought’ in order to give back to those most deserving and reward those who have gone above and beyond with a year-long spa membership.

The handover took place at Pennyhill Park allowing winner Fiona to kickstart her spa membership over the Easter weekend.

The UK-wide campaign is headlined by Lioness and Tottenham Hotspur WSL captain Bethany England, Britain’s most decorated female athlete Christine Ohuruogu and England and Surrey cricket player Jason Roy.

Lioness, Bethany England, commented “I’m really excited to be part of the campaign with and delighted that we are going to be able to give back to those who truly deserve it.

I regularly use the spa as part of my wellness and fitness routine – the benefits of the spa are huge for everyone, whether you’re an athlete or work in an office and need the time to unwind.”

Winner Fiona Lawrence’s son Angus was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2023 and is receiving ongoing treatment.

Angus’s teachers wanted to show their support and so entered the Oxford half marathon and asked if his parents would join them. In a moment of madness, they agreed, word spread and a group of 12 close friends ran, with only 8 weeks of training.

The focus to train and get out and exercise was so good for the group’s mental health and the support they have had has been incredible.

They started with a target of raising £600. As it stands, fundraising for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, in support of Angus, is now at almost £30,000. 

The group and community have more events planned, continuing to raise awareness and funds for vital cancer research and equipment.

Fiona commented “I can’t believe Catherine nominated me and that have given me this membership, it really doesn’t feel real! 

The support we have had from family and friends has been amazing and has really carried us all through. I can’t wait to use the spa and feel the physical & mental benefits of working out and relaxing in the amazing facilities.”

With Bethany’s family having been touched by cancer, Fiona’s story and the work that do to better the spa experience for those with cancer resonated with Bethany.

Bethany has seen first-hand the impact cancer has had on her family and wanted to support the journey of making the spa an accessible place for those suffering.

Partnering with for the campaign and helping to give back to those most deserving this year is the spa & hotel retreat part of Elysium Collection, Pennyhill Park.

Abi Selby, founder of commented “At we understand first-hand the positive impact that the spa can have for us both physically and mentally.

I’m so glad that alongside the team at Pennyhill Park, we’ve been able to give back to people who are so deserving of reaping the benefits of the spa.”
