Local charity champion, Helen Lewis, and her team of "Haddenham Hopefuls" organised a Zumba fundraising event on Sunday 10th January as part of their focus this year on Cancer Research UK.
No less than 45 people turned up to participate in the event, and Haddenham village hall was bouncing in support!
Including some additional donations, the group raised an amazing £495 clear profit — a very commendable achievement in just one morning.
Said Helen: "A huge thank you must go to Lisa Cole and Leah Bartlett for donating their time and expertise free of charge, to lead our fantastic Zumba session."
"Well done to everyone who participated, especially our one gentleman in the crowd, Duncan, who wasn't tall fazed by a hall full of women!"
"Our next fundraising event will be a 'Glitzy Gaming & Cocktails' evening in the village hall on Friday 19th February, from 7.30pm until late. The event will include a Bubbly & Canapes Reception, Buffet, Entertainment including Disco Music, and a Casino with free gaming chips! "
"Tickets are £17.50 each, available from Helen Lewis (Tel: 07931 719232) or Nicola Timberlake (Tel: 07502 311010)."
The Haddenham Hopefuls will be participating in this year's Relay for Life, which takes place at Aylesbury Rugby Club on 2nd July. You can find out more here. Or contact Helen by Email: email@example.com
