Charity Zumba for Phakamisa

Last Saturday we ran our very first charity event in aid of Phakamisa. Plenty more on the way soon!

Our charity Zumba event and raffle managed to raise over €600 for Phakamisa. To see what they do and what this money will be used for check out their website HERE.

So the day itself saw 45 brave people rock up for the 2-hour session of Zumba. We were also lucky enough to find a few very generous sponsors on the day who gave us prizes to be used as part of our raffle. The very generous sponsors were Stephen Byrne, Davy Holmes, Obsession Factory and Justyna Mikołajczyk.

A big shoutout must go to our 10 amazing instructors on the day who gave up their free time to help us out and put on a seriously impressive show for everyone there. It would be rude not to name them individually so here you go; Justyna Mikołajczyk, Ana Maria Lica, Ania Zielinska, Donna Murphy, Fiona Flavin, Jamie Grace, Karolina Orzechowska, Laura Jurgelionyte, Natasha Duff, Siobhan Nic Fhlannchadha.
