A DANCE teacher from Cheadle has raised more than double her fund-raising target after dancing for 24 hours.
Emilie Clarke, 22, was joined by three friends for the exhausting challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK.
After initially planning to raise £1,000, she was joined by Kym Poole, Siobhan Lucas and Chloe Hulse for the 24-hour dance-athon and went on to raise more than £2,500 at the weekend.
The challenge took place at Miss Kym’s School of Dance in Uttoxeter from 6pm on Saturday until 7pm on Sunday to take into account British Summer Time.
As well as a full schedule of dancing and activities, supporters were also able to take part in a raffle and a cake sale.
