'Record turnout' at Grantham charity zumbathon
It was a record turnout at The Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham on Friday as a group of fund-raisers took part in a two-hour charity zumbathon.
Up to 70 people took to the dance floor to strut their moves in aid of the Grantham Journal Children’s Fund in front of Grantham Mayor Councillor Adam Stokes.
Although the final total is not yet know until all sponsorship is collected, the event has already raised more than £700 including £90 from a raffle.
Coun Selby was “really chuffed” with the turnout. He said: “Our zumbathon 2019 was a great success with a record turnout of over 70 on the dance floor at one time, and we have raised a minimum of £700 for the Journal’s Children Fund in the process.
"We had three zumba instructors including Michael Anderson, Tanya Crowcroft and Anna Wątor all doing a great job and I was amazed at how well all the dancers performed.
"Thank you to everyone who took part and who contributed to this fabulous event”.
