Fab Fifurz stage a £2000 Zumbathon

A charity Zumbathon at Templehall Community Centre has raised an incredible £2100 for a very worthy cause.

The event - the first to be held by new charity group Fifurz - was in aid of Reiss Fairbairn (19) from Kirkcaldy.

Parents, Steven and Kerry, hope to raise £2500 for a walker called a Maywalk 2000.

Kerry said she was amazed at the turnout which saw 194 locals take part.

She said: “I didn’t expect for a minute that we would raise so much, or that amount of people would turn up.

“It’s really quite overwhelming that so many people would do this for my son.

‘‘Steven and I appreciate it more than we could say.”

Baton twirling group the Lang Toun Twirlettes - including Reiss’s sister Kerys - kicked off the event which was the brainchild of Fifurz founders Diane Smith and Lesley Cochrane, who said: “The hall was packed!

“Something like this should feel like a party and that was exactly what it was like.

“Everyone threw themselves into it and were having a good time, knowing in the back of their head that they were raising funds for a great cause.”
