Broadstairs Clubberton raises cash for two children’s causes

Glow fun: Clubberthon fundraiser in Broadstairs

A Clubberthon fundraiser held at St George’s school in Broadstairs on Saturday has brought in £1290 so far to be shared between two charities.

The sponsored event was arranged by Manston mum-of-one and fitness instructor Naomi Wright.

Naomi, 34, runs Fitness with Naomi, holding classes in Clubbercise and Kettlercise at  venues including St George’s.

The popular Clubbercise sessions are fun, easy-to-follow dance fitness routines using rave glow sticks to club anthems from 90′s classics to the latest chart hits, taught in a darkened room with disco lights,

The two hour charity event was in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital and Thanet charity Louie’s Helping Hands which provides life-changing support to children aged 2-11 living in Kent with multi-sensory impairments and physical difficulties. The charity is raising money for the build of an expanded Llewellyn School & Nursery at Quex.

GOSH was chosen due to family reasons. Naomi said: “I have chosen Great Ormond Street as one of the charities as they have really helped our family recently with investigating our genetics to get to the bottom of where a rare heart disease condition has come from.

“We are very lucky that our little girl is healthy – however she will still have regular checks – but I realise some families aren’t that lucky and what they must have to go through is unbearable to think about. On visiting GOSH it is just heartbreaking to see what some children have to live with.

“GOSH are an amazing help with what they achieve everyday and in my eyes deserve every penny. “
