We are thrilled that, once again, she organised such a fantastic event to help give the people who attend our day service at FX opportunities to have new experiences in their lives.

Zumbathon at Fulwood Free Methodist Church for Caritas Care Projects

“The main aim was not about making lots of money, but to get people together and socialise, as well as doing exercise.”

The money will be used to raise funds for creating a sensory room and quiet space for the people who attend the day service provision at Caritas Care.
