Dancers get set for fundraising boogie

MORE than 150 dancers will get together to help a Felpham girl walk.

The adults and children will be taking part in a Zumbathon in aid of three-year-old Beth Chiddle.

Their two hours on the go, which will take place on Saturday, and will involve a mixture of fast and slow-paced routines.

The event has been organised by Clare McTernan. She was approached by Beth’s mother, Kerry Chiddle, to help to raise funds for a £30,000 operation.

This will overcome the disability caused by Beth’s cerebral palsy.

The Zumbathon will take place from 2.30pm-4.30pm at the Arena Sports Centre off Westloats Lane. Registration is from 1.45pm. Tickets are £10 each or £5 for ten to 16-year-olds.

They are available from Clare on 01243 265474, or

Clare has arranged sponsors to cover the cost of the venue and a donation of the stage, sound and lighting to ensure all the proceeds go straight to Beth.

Lots of other events are going on to add to the fund to pay for Beth’s life-changing operation, which reached nearly £7,000.

They include a team of ten running in the Bognor Prom 10k on May 20 as well as a mini-Euro 2012 five-a-side football tournament of 16 teams at The Arena on June 2.
