DOZENS of Zumba-lovers danced around the clock to raise more than £1,000 for a charity.

The 24-hour dance workout in support of St Ann’s Hospice took place at Kearsley Methodist Church.

Sisters Rebecca and Gabby Luby, from Kearsley, were among several instructors who conducted one-hour classes on a rota basis.

Gabby, aged 23, said: “I came up with the Zumbathon idea while Rebecca and I were out walking the dogs.

“We organise charity events each year and try to make them bigger and better and St Ann’s is close to our hearts.”
