A SUPER zumba session has raised more than £1,200 to support a cause close to the community’s heart.

Top instructors Jill Forsythe, Jean Kirkwood and Elaine Casement stepped up to organise the fun challenge to help injured firefighter Andy Adams.

Around 60 people took part in the event, held at the 175 Masonic Halls in West Stewart Street in Greenock.

Jill said: “It was a really great day.

“Firefighters from Andy’s watch turned up on stage to join in the fun.

“It was like the Full Monty when one of the guys ripped his trousers – he was mortified but managed to reach the back of the stage keeping his dignity intact!

“The firefighters were very appreciative of what we were doing and we want to thank everyone who supported us.

“People are usually generous when we hold charity events but went above and beyond for Andy, it was quite overwhelming.”

A total of £1,241 was raised – and donations are still coming in.

Jill said: “I think people have been moved by Andy’s story and the fact that he is one of our own.

“When bad things happen, people in Port Glasgow, Gourock and Greenock help one another and show their generosity.”

More than £46,000 has been raised to help Andy Adams Rehabilitation Fund.
