Fundraising events will take place during sessions in Cramlington, Blyth, Seaton Sluice, Whitley Bay and Gosforth.

And members have already stepped up to the mark, collecting £336 through donations and a raffle at their Christmas party.

Liz, 48, said: “I have chosen Diabetes UK as our charity of the year as it sits well with what I am trying to do in my classes – encouraging people to keep fit and, where necessary, lose weight.”

Diabetes UK regional fundraiser Louise Simonian said: “We are very grateful for this wonderful fundraising.

“The money will help us to continue to support the one in 16 people living with diabetes in the UK, as well as funding vital diabetes research.”
