More than 65 people are preparing to sweat it out at a charity Zumbathon taking place this weekend.

The Zumbathon and family fun day event is taking place between 10am and 12.30pm on Saturday (July 16) with proceeds going to support people with testicular and prostate cancer.

It is taking place at Brooke Weston Academy in Corby and has been organised by The Sweatshop Zumba which is owned and run by Hollie Broad.

Hollie has created, managed and run several of these events over the last few years, although she is hoping this will be the biggest one yet.

Those taking part will be a mixture of existing Sweatshop clients, members of the public and the Stewarts & Lloyds football team who are joining in to show their support for such a great cause.

As well as the two-and-a-half-hour Zumba session, there will be various stalls which include local talent and businesses from Corby and the surrounding areas and a wide variety of child and family-friendly activities such as bouncy castles, face-painting and other games.

There will also be food and drinks served.

More than 65 people are due to take part in the Zumba session and there will be lots of spectators there to support their family members on the day.
