DANCERS stepped into line for a children’s cancer charity.
Hundreds of line dancers raised money for the Laura Crane Trust.
The line-dancing extravaganza took place in Selby over the weekend for the Huddersfield-based charity which supports teenagers and young people with cancer.
Dancers took to the floor over 24 hours and danced solidly for the cause.
They were hoping to raise more than £24,000 – £1,000 for every hour they danced.
Pam Thornes, fundraising manager or the Laura Crane trust, said: “We are delighted that such an unusual fundraising event – 24 hours of non-stop line dancing – will raise funds for our Chatworld project.
“We think it’s so kind and generous that so many bands and line dancing groups are willing to support Laura’s trust and our work with young cancer patients.”
The Laura Crane Trust was formed after the death of Laura, a Greenhead College pupil, in May 1996
Staff aim to support young people with cancer during their stay in hospital and at home to help reduced the feelings of isolation they may encounter.
Their new Chatworld project is an online chat room for the cancer patients designed for them to support each other in a safe online environment only they can access.
