Children danced their way to raising £150 for Children with Cancer in St Albans on Saturday.

St Albans mothers’ Sally Lock and Helena Nash organised the street dance event in How Wood Scout hut as part of their London Marathon fundraising. The afternoon was led by Suzi's Dance Crew.

After becoming friends while doing the school runs together at Park Street School, Sally and Helena have dedicated their time to training and fundraising towards the 26-mile run on April 13.

The pair were encouraged to organise the event for their children’s school friends. Sally’s eight-year-old son, Sebastian Ferdinand, and Helena’s eight-year-old daughter, Bonnie, are in the same class at school.

Sally, 41 of Puddingstone Drive said: "It was really good and there was a great turn out.

"The children really enjoyed themselves and it helped us on our way to our fundraising target. "

Both hope to raise £3,000 for their chosen charity and have raised £1,260 so far. To help them reach this fundraising target, they have organised a charity gig to take place at the Old Verulamium Rugby Club, in North Orbital Road, on March 28 at 8pm.The concert will include performances from St Albans based band The Thing Is.
