Two fundraising events in Enderby raised more than £400 for Comic Relief with 180 people taking part in physical activity for charity.

Active Together Blaby organised a marathon three hour zumbathon at Enderby Leisure Centre on Friday March 18.

The zumbathon was followed by a short Smiles 4 Miles fun run at Brockington College on Sunday March 20 supported by Sainsbury’s at Fosse Park, Leicester.

Darren Farish, physical activity development officer at Blaby District Council said:

“The weekend was great fun and to see people supporting local events, doing their bit for charity and enjoying physical activity all at the same time was fantastic.”
