Dancers hit the fundraising floor for Jubilee

PATRIOTIC colours of red, white and blue flooded a fundraising sequence-dance that capitalised on celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The event at Hucknall Leisure Centre, which had a ‘Last Night Of The Proms’ theme, raised £1,200. Money will go towards buying at least one lifesaving defibrillators for the venue on Linby Road.

The dance, which attracted 120 people, was organised by Lynn Davey, an exercise instructor at the centre, with support from her husband, Kevin, and the Hucknall 50-Plus Group.

The defibrillators deliver an electric shock to the heart that could make the difference between life and death after heart attacks. Each machine costs £1,100.

As part of the sequence-dance total, £310 came from a raffle. A further £100 was raised by another raffle by Lynn’s aqua aerobics class, which is holding a second sponsored event today (Friday) with a Jubilee theme.
