Dancing Reigate school pupils raise hundreds for charity
9:02pm Monday 14th January 2013 in News
Students at Reigate's Dunottar School danced their way to fundraising success in one of a variety of sponsored activities to boost charity proceeds.
The Year 8 pupils at Dunottar Senior School took to the floor in a sponsored event called Just Dance, to raise money for Diabetes UK.
The charity was nominated for fundraising by 12-year-old pupil Jacqueline Saleh, supported by her class.
And the youngsters managed to raise £430 for the cause.
Jacqueline said: ““We decided to choose Diabetes UK because my father has diabetes and I would like to help him in some way.”
Form tutor Julie Boden said: “I am very proud of what the girls have achieved in such a short space of time.” She said: “They have developed many skills, such as responsibility and thoughtfulness for others. They have also had fun along the way!”
