Fund-raisers to try out scary moves

Have your say

ZUMBA classes are going zombie in a bid to boost a charity’s funds.

Diabetes UK is inviting groups to hold Zombie Zumbathon this Halloween as it appeals for help to raise cash.

Louise Simonian, regional fund-raising manager for the region, said: “Zumba is great fun, and exercising regularly as part of a healthy lifestyle can reduce a person’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.”

Diabetes UK is asking people to pull on fancy dress for the events and will provide a free T-shirt and crazy hair for the event organiser as well as sponsorship packs.

Anyone who would like to organise a Zombie Zumbathon can email or call 01325 488 606.
