Dress up challenge

Cambridgeshire schools are being urged to sign up for non-uniform day with a dance-inspired twist.

Macmillan Cancer Support is hoping dozens of local schools will take part in its new Dress Up and Dance challenge to help raise cash for people with cancer.

The new event will see school pupils across the UK wearing their favourite dancing outfit to school on June 21 and taking part in a dance, with a suggested routine provided by Macmillan. The youngsters will be asked to bring in a £2 donation on the day.

Fundraising manager for Cambridgeshire, Charlotte Darlow, said: “Dress up and Dance is all about kids having some fun, moving around, trying something new and at the same time raising a bit of money for charity. I think it’s something schools in Cambridgeshire would really enjoy so I hope some of them will sign up to take part.”

Ten people in Cambridgeshire are diagnosed with cancer every day, the funds raised will help to support people practically, emotionally, financially and medically and help Macmillan to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.
