A ZUMBATHON raised hundreds in memory of a cancer patient.

Sarah Pearson took part in the event held in memory of her mother, Lindsey Gould.

More than 100 people participated at Brightlingsea Sports Centre. It was lead and organised by instructor Liarana Cooper.

The event raised £620 for St Helena Hospice which cared for her mum, Lindsey Gould, before she lost her battle with cancer in May last year.

Miss Pearson, 31, will also be running the London Marathon in April this year.
