Dancers to be put through their paces in fundraiser

A fitness evening to raise money for a lung cancer charity will take place this weekend.

Instructor Amy Marshall has organised the event to raise funds and awareness for the British Lung Foundation, as her mother suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

She will host an evening of dance moves at Kettering Police Station’s social club, in London Road, and people will be put through their paces in a Zumba session as well as American dancing style, Bokwa.

The dance, which has gained popularity in the US, sees participants draw letters and numbers with their feet during a work-out routine.

Ms Marshall said: “She was rushed into intensive care on Christmas day three years ago and we were told to say our goodbyes but to our astonishment she pulled through.

“Each day is a struggle for my mum so I want to raise the awareness of the disease.”

The event will take place on Saturday, September 8, from 8pm to midnight, with a fun night planned after the dancing. A donation of £8 is asked from participants.
