diddi dance South Manchester are thrilled to announce that they raised a fantastic £252.91 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in their Dress Up and Dance event. Dress Up and Dance was a one day event Macmillian held last Friday, 20 June but diddi dance South Manchester decided to make a whole week of it and get everyone dancing around for charity!
diddi dance South Manchester invited all their diddi dancers to get dressed up in their favourite dance themed outfits during their classes running from the 16th to the 21st June. They asked all who came to make a donation to the charity and come & enjoy some dancing fun – whether new or not to diddi dance.
There was a fantastic buzz and energy in the classes and they had a great selection of costumes from flamenco dancers to cowboys & girls, rock stars to ravers and Bollywood dancers to ballerinas, as well as a fair number of princesses too!
The money raised really will make a difference to the 1,500 children diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK – and their families. The donations will help Macmillan provide practical, medical and financial support for people with cancer, so no one has to face cancer alone.
Lisa Lawson, owner of diddi dance South Manchester said, “Macmillan is an excellent charity, and we were so pleased we could raise so much money for them”. A Rep from the Macmillian School and Youth Facebook Fan Page had the following to say about the week, “What a great idea to have a whole week of Dress Up. All your kids look very cute in the photos – we love their whistles, guitars, hula hoops and other props! Thank you for raising such an incredible amount.”
Thank to all the diddi dancers who took part and helped in raising the money! Thank you, as well, to Kelliejo Photography for taking the above photos of the diddi dancers in action.
