More than 100 women danced for two hours in Worle to raise money for a children’s hospital’s appeal.

The women were invited to the @Worle fitness centre, in New Bristol Road.

The zumbathon raised £1,400 for Bristol Children’s Hospital’s Grand Appeal.

Candace Riley, from @Worle, who helped to organise it along with Anna Kowalczyk-Jakubowska and Sam Ledbetter, said: “It went really well in the end. We had a few technical difficulties with the music, but it did go really well.”

It was the first time @Worle had organised a charity zumbathon, and there are plans for another event on June 4.
