Zumba groups raise money for charity with pink party

Three Zumba instructors brought all their classes together for a special charity night in Leyburn to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

Leyburn Methodist Hall hosted a Party in Pink organised by three local Zumba instructors – Lynne Chilton, Karolina Grochalska and Cath Margetts.

All three run Zumba classes in the area but wanted to unite all their classes for one evening, to raise funds for charity.

This story continues after the adverts:


A large number of woman turned out on a cold, winter’s evening to support the event.

Lots of dancing and laughing was had, followed by pink drinks and snacks.

Lynne was thrilled with the number that attended.

“It is fabulous that our community comes together on evenings like this. We all know someone that has been affected by this awful disease and this is just our little way of helping someone, somewhere.”

The current total raised for the evening stands at £250 but this is set to rise with further donations promised.
