A COUPLE are gearing up for two tough physical challenges in aid of Colchester General Hospital.

Emma Cullip, 28, will host a Zumbathon on April 13 and eight days later her husband, Gary, 27, will run the London Marathon.

The pair, from St Osyth, hope to raise £1,000 for the hospital’s neonatal unit after their daughter, Florrie-Belle, was delivered by emergency Caesarean section last November, three weeks early.

Mrs Cullip said: “The level of care was so fantastic that we just wanted to do something to help the hospital”
