KEEP fit fanatics pushed themselves to the limit to complete 40 back-to-back routines for charity.

In all, 22 people took part in a four-hour dance workout at Great Cornard Sports Centre on Saturday, in support of Help for Heroes, which supports wounded armed forces personnel

Natalie Cant, who organised the zumba-thon, said around £1,000 had been raised, with the money going to the charity’s Personnel Recovery Centre in Colchester.

“It was a very good event and there was a great atmosphere,” said Natalie, who runs zumba classes in Sudbury and Colchester.

“The cause is close to my heart as my partner is with the parachute regiment in Colchester and my brother has been through rehabilitation, so I know how important the centre is.”

The 30-year-old said that everyone taking part had given their all.

“I’ve had lots of positive feedback and they were a phenomenal class,” said Natalie.

“Everyone was very tired at the end but they were buzzing from the experience.”
