MORE than 40 people came together in Morpeth to move their bodies for a good cause.

King Edward VI School sixth-form students are supporting charities and Sarah Kelly put together a Zumbathon for the Percy Hedley Foundation, which raised £557.

She thanked Beth Smylie and Lisa Oguona for instructing as well as the technical crew and photographers for their efforts on the night.

The 17-year-old added: “I’m very grateful to my family and friends for their support, those who have taken part and/or made a donation and all the businesses which kindly donated to the raffle prize.”
