Quick-footed fund-raisers are hoping to shine when they step up to the challenge to raise funds for the hospice.

As part of the Jacobs Allen Accumulator Challenge, which raises money for St Nicholas Hospice Care, the arc shopping centre has teamed up with the Jessica Barber Academy of Dance to host Glow in the arc.

The energetic occasion will see people pull on their trainers and join in with a Clubbercise session – simple, fun dance fitness routines using glow sticks to club anthems from 90s classics to the latest chart hits.

Colin Roberts, arc centre manger, said: “This is our sixth year taking part in the Accumulator Challenge as we continue to do our bit to support our local hospice.

“We love taking part as we get to have fun organising the event and get to see people having fun taking part. This event might be our craziest yet and we can’t wait to see hospice supporters and fitness fanatics supporting a very worthy cause.”

In a bid to secure the team’s place at the top of the challenge’s leader board, the event will also include a raffle, with tickets costing £1 per strip.

The event will take place in Charter Square from 8-10pm on Wednesday (August 10), with the exercise session running from 8.30-9.30pm.

Tickets cost £10 each plus a booking fee which includes glow sticks.

The first 15 people to book will each receive a Debenhams beauty goody bag, to be collected on the night at the event.
