Community, What's On

Zumba lovers, fitness fanatics and fun seekers in the Newry and Mourne area are being encouraged to take part in a special Zumba party in aid of learning disability charity, Mencap.

The event will take place at Warrenpoint Town Hall on Thursday 26th April from 7pm until 8pm and will welcome people of all ages and abilities to get together and Zumba for charity. Hosted by Nicky Hayes, a fully qualified and experienced instructor, an evening of high energy and Latin fever is guaranteed.

Oonagh McConville from Mencap in Newry says Zumba has taken the country by storm because it is suitable for women (and men) of all shapes, sizes and abilities.

“We know that there are lots of people across the county who really enjoy Zumba on a regular basis as not only does it keep them fit, but more importantly it’s fun! We are hoping as many as possible will join Mencap’s first ever Zumba party and make this a hugely successful event for us.”

“All the money raised will go towards the services we provide in the local area supporting both children and adults with a learning disability. With two babies born every week in Northern Ireland with a learning disability, and numbers set to increase by 14% in 2021, we need the public’s support more than ever.”

Registration is at 6.30pm and the entry fee is £5 or pay £10 for entry, a Mencap t-shirt and a bottle of water. Refreshments will be available for sale plus there will be a raffle with fantastic prizes up for grabs.

Places are limited, so join the party as soon as possible and email Mencap on fundraising.ni@mencap.org.uk to reserve your place.
