The Zumbathon, held at Staffordshire University was arranged by the Douglas Macmillan to raise awareness of the hospice and to get people to zumba for a good cause.

Although it’s not yet been confirmed it’s hoped that the incredible turn out on Sunday will lead to a new world record for the amount of people zumba-ing at the same time. The zumba enthusiasts also raised £10,000 which goes which out saying is outstanding.

 Having watched the event develop through the Douglas Macmillan’s Twitter page it has been fantastic to see the number of participants get higher and higher, on Friday (the closing date for online registration) an incredible 967 people were signed up.

It’s great to see so much support for a local charity especially one which is very well after through after in the local area. A huge well done to all involved- great fun for a great cause.
