A zumba instructor has organised a Flintshire charity zumbathon in aid of an orphanage in Uganda.

The event will take place at the Mold Leisure Centre on Saturday (June 11) between 6pm and 8pm.

The event has been organised by Lina Maria Greig who regularly teaches classes across Flintshire and Chester.

Those attending are invited to dance and partake in a zumba fitness class as well as enter a tombola.

Tickets cost £10 and funds will go to the Home of Peace Uganda which is a Commuity Based Organisation in Jinja Uganda.

The money will be put towards school fees for 25 children to allow them to go back to school in September.

The children are cared for by the Home of Peace in Jinja Uganda and are made up of nursery, primary and secondary school age.

Monica Hogg, who lives in Mold, is a trustee at the charity.

She said: “Education is not free in Uganda and as Home of Peace (Child Care Ministry) looks after 26 orphaned children every term we need to raise about £1,500 to cover the costs.”

Ms Hogg is the only Home of Peace fundraiser based in the UK and has been volunteering with the organisation for the past five years.
