A STOCKTON Heath fitness studio has joined forces with a charity which supports families across the region affected by childhood cancer.

Immortal Fitness Studios, on London Road, is supporting The Joshua Tree.

Owner Luis Lee, 25, has taken four children from the organisation under his wing to offer help with nutrition and training.

Joshua Hill, 17, the son of the charity's founders, and Xavier Doran, 16, have been praised by Luis for their efforts.

He said: "Xavier has only just come out of remission a couple months ago and is really making some serious changes in his confidence and physically too.

"Joshua has made a great transformation in his confidence and enthusiasm.

"If only you could see his mental change, as the physical is quite apparent."
