A group of personal trainers are urging people to ‘get their Glo’ on and release their inner diva to help give vulnerable and poorly children a Christmas to remember.

Personal trainers Stephanie Roe and Hannah Dawson are holding a dance fitness fundraiser next week in aid of two children’s charities.

Everyone from fitness fanatics to exercise beginners are being invited to let loose with ’80s Aerobics, Diva Dancing and Glo Fit classes when the event takes place at the Neale Wade Academy in March next Friday, October 23, from7pm to 9.30pm.

Stephanie and Hannah, who work across the Cambridgeshire area, have teamed up with fellow personal trainers Conan Nichols and Kathleen Henderson for the evening, which will be raising money for the Break children’s homes charity and the Amazon children’s ward at Peterborough City Hospital.

The event will include three 45-minute classes, with 80s Aerobics and Diva Dancing featuring a host of popular 1980s tracks and hair-flicking hits.

There will also be a raffle, before the lights go out for the grand finale, Glo Fit.

Everyone is welcome to come in fancy dress, and change for each session if they wish.

Glo sticks will also be available to buy, with all proceeds going to the two causes.

Stephanie said they wanted to organise the event to help give vulnerable and poorly children the special Christmas they deserve.

She said: “Children are our future so they deserve the best start. Some are not so fortunate and the charities we have chosen are not as heard of as other charities, but they are just as deserving.

“This Christmas it would be nice to know they have what most other children have, a Christmas tree, a present, and sweets and chocolates to enjoy.”

She hopes the event will raise around £500 to be split equally between the causes.

Tickets cost £15 in advance by contacting Stephanie on 07956 309049 or Hannah on 07793 942893, or £20 on the door. Children welcome.
