Zumbathon (TM) Charity Event to benefit "Sarah" was held on Friday, May 8, 2015 6.30 to 7.45pm at Pilot's Row Centre, Rossville St., Derry (Photos below).
"Sarah" is a local woman who has been forced to return to Australia with her young child. She is currently fighting for custody of her child with her Australian ex-husband. While these proceedings are going on, "Sarah" has been forced to Australia and she has been prevented from working or receiving any type of benefits. She has no family there and is all alone fighting for her child! She is scared and needs our help! Please attend this Zumbathon (TM) and spread the word!
