A charity Zumbathon at a Newton church will raise cash for the Stick ‘n’ Step charity, which helps children with cerebral palsy.
The event will run from 7-9pm at St Columba’s Church Hall in Plas Newton Lane on Friday, February 26.
It costs £10 to take part and no experience is necessary and there will be the opportunity to rest at any time.
There will be a real variety of music from Latin beats to pop hits and rock classics. Participants can just turn up on the night and all the money raised will go directly to Stick’n’Step.
The Zumbathon is being organised by a Burton dad, whose sons the charity has helped, Beckie Lawson and Dom Dainton-McElroy.
Steve’s son Jack has cerebral palsy and six years ago his parents were told that he wouldn’t be able to walk properly, swim or do other activities with his peers. He now has a 400m badge for lifesaving, plays for Cerebral Palsy United and is goalkeeper for his school team all due to the help and support he received from the charity.
Steve is also running the London Marathon in April to raise more funds.
The Stick ‘n’ Step charity supports 70 children and their families who travel from across the North West and North wales to their Merseyside centre for free conductive education therapy.
The services include sessions to teach children how to complete basic tasks that most people take for granted, such as dressing themselves or walking. They also provide informal counseling to the families and family days out so they can increase their support network.
The charity also has a Chester-based centre, which will be fully converted by the end of the year if enough funds are raised.
