Residents are encouraged to come along and have fun at a charity Zumba session this evening.

The session will raise funds for Maytree Respite Centre - a charity which helps prevent suicide.

Organisers are putting on the event in memory of Chantelle Goddard who took her own life last year.

One of the organisers, Carrie Raybould wants to encourage residents to come along and have fun. "We don't take it seriously. It's all about having a laugh and raising money and awareness for the cause."

The event will take place from 6pm to 8pm this evening (Monday October 17) at Burnby Hall.

Tickets cost £5 and all the money will go towards the charity.
