From 25th June to 2nd July, 28 young people, from Ruddington and surrounding area, who attend the Freedom Dance and Performance School in Charles Street, will be in Jersey representing Team England in the Dance World Cup.
Over the last few months they have been busy enthusiastically fundraising as their places are self funded. They had done various activities including bag packing in the Ruddington Co-op and at Morrisons in Clifton and Gamston. They have held tombolas, done a sponsored Zumbathon and sold raffle tickets. Their finale was a fundraising black tie event at Alea Casino.
Their Facebook page has been bombarded by Good Luck messages from dancers in West End Shows and TV personalities so it is only appropriate that we as their “home” village add to those best wishes.
“We have received so much support from local businesses and groups we truly are overwhelmed, and hope that we do England proud and put Ruddington on the map.” Stacey Gaunt
