Back in July we held a Charity Class and raffle for The British Heart Foundation. For the past 8 1/2 years we have been raising thousands of pounds together for worthy charities, the recipients of the funds are usually charities connected to or have helped my students in some way. This time it was my turn, the loss of my dad in December of a heart attack left me heartbroken.
Along with my best friend Lucy and 3 other fellow Zumba Instructors we held a 2 hr Charity Zumba Class. It was very well supported as so many people have been affected in some way or another by heart problems.
We were hugely grateful to be supported by Barclays Bank. Friend and employee Paula Edwards offered to run the raffle and Barclays matched the revenue to the tune of £1000 boosting the total raised to over £2600! Who knows maybe someone else’s dad will be helped to live after a heart attack, I truly hope so❤️.
Constantly astounded by my students and Instructor friends support and generosity we really are a Zumba Family❤️
