In a post on Facebook, she said: "Huge thank you everyone, I don't believe I found the club by chance, given just 2 months to heal myself now and this is coming at the right time.

"One day when I get my Jujitsu black belt will be the proudest day of my life."

Entertainment included stilt walkers, face painting, raffles and martial arts and self defence sessions.
