CHILDREN danced along to the beat of the drums to raise money for their pre-school.

Lucy Taylor, who runs Clubbercise classes in Colchester, held a Zumbini session at Centre Pre-School.

Zumbini is a special dance session for children and includes instruments and props.

The event was to help pay for equipment for the children and to help fund their summer trip.

Pre-school manager Alison Barry said: “This summer we are going to Cudmore Grove so the money raised will go towards transport and it will be a really nice day.”

“At the moment we have about £200.

“Lucy did two sessions with the children and they were brilliant.

“We did dancing and Lucy used music from different countries, we also had scarves which we waved around.”

She added the sessions were interactive and energetic. “The children were really able to express themselves and use their imagination.”
