A ZUMBATHON at Barnsley College raised £397 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Level 2 Travel and Tourism students organised the two hour dance and exercise session with the help of Zumba coaches Jo Cantle, Helen Eyre and Julie Cotney.

As well as raising funds through sponsorship, the students sold refreshments and held a raffle for the hospice.

Student Abbegayle Howarth Sellars, 19, of Bolton Upon Dearne said: “It is a cause close to my heart and I hoped we would raise around £200, I’m delighted with the amount we raised. I’ve never done Zumba before but it’s really fun.”
