Felixstowe: Zumba fans set to boost Camille’s Appeal

PEOPLE will be put through their paces at a zumbathon exercise event at Felixstowe – to help raise money for a children’s brain tumour charity.

The energy-sapping two-hour stint is to be held at the resort’s seafront leisure centre on Sunday in aid of Camille’s Appeal.

Organisers are hoping that as many people as possible will join in and fill the centre hall to help raise as much cash as they can for the cause.

The event takes place from 10am to noon and tickets cost �10 per person and can be purchased on the day.

Rageenee Hope, who is part of the organising team, said: “Jonnie Lowdell, manager of Felixstowe Leisure Centre, has been kind enough to donate the hall space for this event.

“And Alex Davis, Jo Laherty and Natalie McCullough are kindly donating their time as the zumba instructors for the event.”

Camille’s Appeal was set up in August 2009 by Martin and Hayley Shave, of Ipswich, after their daughter, Camille, was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of two.

Now aged four, Camille is free of cancer but still faces a long road to recovery. Since the cause was founded, fundraisers have raised more than �150,000.

The money will be used to help support children under the age of five who are suffering from brain tumours – focusing on raising awareness of the disease and working with Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, and the NHS to provide rehabilitation services for children that have undergone brain tumour treatment.
