Zumbathon offers chance to get fit and raise funds
Earn your Saturday night takeaway and television time by joining more than 100 people in an energetic charity fundraiser.
A zumba and bokwathon event is being held to raise funds for Lindsey Lodge Hospice and organisers are looking for people to take part.
Zumba and bokwa are high-energy, dance-based fitness programmes.
The two-hour session will take place at North Lindsey College on the morning of Saturday, October 6.
It follows a similar event last year, which attracted 130 participants and raised around £1,500.
Mel Banham, head of fundraising at the hospice, said: "We are working in conjunction with Hayley Thompson, who is a fully qualified zumba and bokwa instructor.
"She very kindly gives an event a year where the proceeds go to Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
"We are hoping we can have 140 people strutting their funky stuff for a couple of hours on the morning."
Last year's event was held at the Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort in Broughton but more people can be accommodated at the college.
The activity is open to anybody aged 16 and above, of any ability.
Mr Banham said anybody taking part would be in a win-win situation, helping the hospice while keeping fit.
He said: "The day is open to people of all abilities, so it is not just for real, out-and-out fitness fanatics.
"It is open to people who just fancy going along to a trial session to find out what it is all about."
Instructor Hayley said: "I love to support a local charity that helps people in our community and it's great to be able to help them raise funds by using my love of fitness."
The event will run from 10am to 12.30pm, although the first half-hour will be used for registrations.
People can then take part in as much or as little of the remaining two hours as they wish.
The entry fee is £10 and registration can be done online at www.lindseylodgehospice.org.uk until 5pm today (Thursday, October 4).
It will also be possible to register on the day, although places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis up to the 140 capacity.
