Funeral directors at CPJ Field Ballard & Shortall, Horley, sponsored a Zumbathon on May 7 2016 in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice.
The dance-inspired aerobics workout took place at Oakwood Sports Centre in Horley and lasted two hours. All money raised from the £3 entry fee was donated to St Catherine’s Hospice.
Funeral director, Karen Everest-Dowden, from Ballard & Shortall, donned her lycra and trainers to take part in the cardio dance workout. She commented: “We’re so pleased to have the opportunity to sponsor such a fantastic event. St Catherine’s Hospice is a well-loved local charity that offers comfort and support to so many people during what is often the worst period of their lives. This event is the perfect mixture of fun, fitness and charity raising, so there is every reason to get involved.”
The money raised from the Zumbathon will help St Catherine’s Hospice continue its vital work, supporting members of the local community affected by serious illness and providing palliative care to people facing conditions such as cancer and heart failure.
