Honiton dancers put on blockbuster performance at Woodbury for children’s hospice

Young dancers from Honiton were among a group who took inspiration from the Silver Screen to put on a blockbuster performance in Woodbury in aid of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Dancers from Honiton, Exeter and Crediton, students from the June Bealey School of Dance in Exeter, spent many weeks rehearsing for their Movie Night show at Woodbury Village Hall.

The two performances, which included a Titanic-themed ballet dance, raised £1,540 for the children’s hospice charity.

The funds were raised through ticket sales, a raffle and bake sale.

Dance school principal June Bealey presented the cheque to CHSW community fundraiser Laura Robertson and thanked all who supported the performances.

Lisa-Jayne Flynn, dance teacher, said: “It has been an amazing experience putting on this show with such talented students and creating fabulous routines which they have really enjoyed performing.

“The amount raised for CHSW is testament to all their hard work.”

Laura Robertson, CHSW spokeswoman, said: “We are thrilled that the dance school chose to raise money for local families who need us.

“Children’s Hospice South West relies almost entirely on voluntary contributions and we just couldn’t do what we do without the incredible support of the local community.”
