A gym focused on supporting women recently raised more than $5000 in support of a local not-for-profit that provides services for those impacted by sexual assault and domestic violence.

Bodyrox held an old Hollywood glamour Ball late last month and raised $5,741 for Waratah.

Bodyrox owner Jessica Males said the night had gone really well and they were planning to continue supporting Waratah in the future.

"We were really happy with the outcome," she said.

"It's a pretty good feeling to be able to give back to the community - it warms my heart."

It demonstrates that people care about each other in Bunbury and they want to help people that have had this awful trauma.

Waratah provides free, specialised intervention services for people who have experienced sexual assault and/or family domestic violence or for those who are dealing with the impacts of the trauma in their lives.

Waratah chief executive Astrid Chapman said it was an incredible achievement by the Bodyrox team to raise so much.

"It demonstrates that people care about each other in Bunbury and they want to help people that have had this awful trauma and do what they can," she said.

"It's amazing the difference 120 people can make.

"We see more than 100 people a month, the funding will go towards ongoing counselling."
