Zumbathon raises hundreds for hospice
3:30pm Tuesday 19th February 2013 in News
ABOUT 60 people enjoyed a fun workout class while raising hundreds for a worthy cause. E Hill and Son Funeral Directors of Pershore organised a Zumbathon, which combines Latin and international music with an effective workout system, at Pershore Leisure Centre.
As well as working up a sweat they were able to raise £675.50 for St Richard’s Hospice through entry charges and a raffle of items donated by local businesses.
Paula Hill, a business patron for the charity, said: “It was really good fun. We had some people who had done it before and others who came to give it a go.”
She said the leisure centre allowed them to use the venue for free and Zumba instructor Jo Gaze also gave her services without charge.
