Put your best foot forward in a fundraising Zumbathon

�Put your best foot forward for First Step by taking part in a fundraising Zumbathon.

The event at the David Lloyd gym in Squirrel’s Heath has been organised by Zumba instructor Keely Spelling.

Keely’s son Teddy, three, has started attending a weekly support group at First Step this month with potential Asperger’s syndrome.

Keely said, after seeing the work of the children’s charity in Hornchurch, she wanted to run the event to help raise money for services provided at its centre.

She said: “I was referred to First Step by a friend who also has a son who attends. They do brilliant work and know what they are doing. They really pay attention to every child and it’s fantastic.

“Teddy goes to pre-school but is now also coming to First Step once a week to get support. It will be the first time he will be with others who have a similar condition to him, which will help him.”
