Rais­ing more than a sweat

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

A group of friends car­ried out a three hour aer­o­bathon at Ash­ford’s Stour Cen­tre to raise £200 for char­ity.

Or­gan­iser Marie Beba en­rolled the help of body com­bat in­struc­tor Michelle Prior to lead 20 peo­ple in the char­ity aer­o­bathon.

The traf­fic of­fi­cer, 36, of Ken­ning­ton, or­gan­ised the event to raise funds for Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port.

Ear­lier in the year she lost six toe­nails run­ning 85km to raise £400 in mem­ory of her mother Anne Beba, who lost her bat­tle with ovar­ian can­cer in 2008.

Mrs Beba said: “I’ve done lots for Can­cer Re­search UK and I’ve helped out with the Pil­grims Hospice py­jama walk and Macmil­lan was the only one that I hadn’t done any­thing for. They re­ally helped my mum out with a lot of stuff so I just wanted to help them.”
