Sue’s Ready to Zumba

Get ready to ZumbaSue Skillen of Rowan House had an energetic time on March 16th as she took part in a Zumbathon held at Commonweal School in Swindon. The picture shows the report of the event in the local paper.

The 3 hour event was arranged to raise funds for Prospect Hospice, who looked after a member of Sue’s family recently.

Overall, the 60 ladies who took part raised around £2,500 and Sue’s share was an impressive £150.

Apparently an hour’s Zumba burns around 500 calories. Therefore, I can see Zumbathons becoming a popular event!

    Thanks Mark. Yes it is, I usually only do an hour so 3 was a challenge to say the least!
