A HIGH-flying fund-raiser is aiming to tap out more cash for cancer.

Charlotte Hill raised more than £1,000 for the Northern Oesophagus Gastric Cancer Fund, when she challenged herself to a white knuckle skydive in October.

Now the 23-year-old is hoping to raise as much money as possible from a sponsored Zumba session.

Charlotte, of Plains Farm, runs boot camps and Zumba classes and is using her talents to raise money in memory of her aunt, Ann Royal, of Plains Farm, who died of oesophagus gastric cancer aged 73.

“She didn’t know she had it,” said Charlotte. “She just had a cough for ages then found out that it was cancer.

“That’s why I want to do these events, because people don’t know much about the cancer or the charity and I want to raise awareness of both.

“My aunty Ann did a lot of charity work too.

“She attended the Holy Rosary church at Farringdon and was involved in a lot of their missionary work.”

The charity night will be held at Thorney Close Club on Monday, April 8, from 6pm to 7pm.

Charlotte, who works at Lloyds TSB call centre, North Hylton, said: “Anyone who wants to come along and encourage people but doesn’t want to do the Zumba class is also welcome.”

Tickets cost £3. For details call 0799 057 5611 or visit Charlotte’s Fitness Classes on Facebook.
