A DANCE school has raised hundreds of pounds for Rowcroft Hospice during their first year of classes.

Two Sisters Dance and Theatre Arts, based at Coombeshead Academy, has raised more than £630 for the charity since they opened last September – through sales of hot drinks and biscuits every Saturday morning for parents waiting for their children; a raffle and refreshments at their dance school show in March; and a fun Halloween dress up week with pupil donations.

Co-principal Laura Robinson said: ‘We’re thrilled that in this first year all our pupils and parents helped us raise £630.62 and we presented the cheque at our one-year anniversary party for our school. We’re so grateful to everyone for all their donations this year.’
