About 100 people came together at the Charles Burrell Centre, Thetford, to raise funds for the cancer prevention charity Skcin.

Organiser and jazzercise instructor, Sarah Kirk, thought of the event to raise funds after her father died in May 2016 of skin cancer.

The Skcin team was at the fitness day and conducted tests on the ages of people's skin using a UV machine and an iPhone app. Through sponsorships £4,500 was raised.

Ms Kirk said: "I became ambassador for charity Skcin and also a jazzercise instructor in my spare time and wanted to involve my colleagues and customers in a fundraising project.
