In one spectacular evening the North House pupils of Bancroft’s School raised a record £5600 for Danceaid: which is the biggest single school donation we’ve ever had!!
The money was raised by a very successful North House Family Evening during which members of North House danced and performed for their friends and families to help us make a difference. It wasn’t just the pupils that entertained though, our amazing patrons (& Britain’s Got Talent finalists) Twist and Pulse were special guest performers at the evening. The Housemaster of North House, Trevor Ward told us about the event, “The evening brought out the very best in the pupils, with many musical, dramatic and, of course, dance talents on display. Twist and Pulse’s dynamic performance provided a fitting and energetic finale to the evening.”
Our very own Laura Wilson was there to witness the evening firsthand. She described it as a fabulous evening and was impressed with the mature and professional way in which the students organised it. She also spoke of the high standards of performance from the pupils. Laura further explained that “every penny of the huge total will go to help impoverished, orphaned and exploited children in the UK, Africa and Asia.”
As you know danceaid harnesses the energy, the passion, and the popularity of dance to transform the lives of vulnerable children. danceaid wants to raise the UK and beyond to its feet to help orphaned, poor, and exploited children in the developing world, and here in the UK !
