Personal trainer will host Zumba session to support Cancer Research UK

A PERSONAL trainer will host her second charity Zumba session in support of the fight against cancer.

Amy West, of March, held a class at the town’s Westwood Junior School in August to raise money for her friend Danny Baxter. Just weeks after the fundraising event the 26-year-old, of Whittlesey, lost his battle against terminal lung cancer.

Proceeds from the Zumba class were donated to help sarcoma research at University College London Hospitals (UCLH), one of the places where Danny received treatment.

Cancer Research UK will benefit this time when Ms West hosts another one-hour latin-based dance fitness session on January 28.

Ms West said: “Everybody knows someone, or knows of someone, who is battling cancer of has died from it. Sadly the disease is very close to home for many people.

“This class is a fun way for people to raise money for a worthy cause. It’s an enjoyable experience, fancy dress and spectators are welcome, and the music is good.”

Men or women can attend the Zumba event but participants must be at least 16 years old. Spaces do not have to be pre-booked to attend the class.

The session - at Westwood - begins at 10.30am and costs �5 to take part.

Money raised from the class will go towards funds collected during a sold-out charity ball at Wisbech St Mary Community Centre in February.

Louise McClagish, a friend of Ms West, is holding the ball in aid of Cancer Research UK after losing her grandmother to the disease.
