Southlands High School in Chorley held a two-hour zumba session on Saturday, combining dance moves inspired by samba, salsa and hip hop with classic moves from aerobics and martial arts.
The event raised more than £200 towards the cost of a new roof for a school in the Gambia, which Southlands has supported for several years.
Lindsay Hoyle, Chorley MP, said: “It was amazing to see so many people gather for both the fitness classes and just to join in the community spirit, whilst at the same time raising much-needed funds for Gambia.”
There are plans to hold another Zumba event in the school’s courtyard in the summer.
