St Catherine’s is boosted by Zumbathon dancers

Have your say

Dozens of people turned out for a zumbathon to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice.

The event, organised by instructor Sarah Forster, was held at Lea Club and ran for three hours, raising more than £2,500 for the cause.

Sarah, along with fellow instructors Stuart Thompson, Mata Stratakou, Donna Wallbank, Richelle Motherwell and Becky Higham each led a section throughout the event, joined by 70 zumba enthusiasts. There was a raffle on the day with donations from Preston businesses including Realign and Croft Brothers garage.

There were also signed football shirts from Preston North End and Liverpool Football Clubs.

Sarah described the event as a “fantastic afternoon”.
