There was swinging, swaying, records playing and even a few ‘wiggles and giggles’ as hundreds of fund-raisers enjoyed a charity Zumbathon.

Nearly 200 Zumba fans donned their brightest neon threads to strut their stuff for three hours at Curvemotion, in Bury St Edmunds.

The event, supported by Denny Bros, raised £2,666.72 in aid of team ‘Wiggles and Giggles’, who are putting their best feet forward in Cancer Research UK’s Relay for Life next month.

Zumba instructors Marie Denny, Joanna Brown, Alex Beale, Josie Sparkes, Hannah Richbell, Dawn Vickerage, Jess Hughes and Camille Ives all led energetic sets on the night.

Joanna said: “This was our third Zumbathon at Curvemotion and we think it was our best yet.

“I’ve never seen so many brightly-dressed people dancing at one time, and all for a great cause.

“Everyone involved would like to thank all those who came along on the night for being so energetic and noisy throughout, as well as Denny Bros for enabling the event to happen.”

Thanks to donations from Denny Bros and other businesses, a fundraising raffle was also held.

Relay for Life is at the Ickworth estate, in Horringer, on July 11.
