An attempt to break the world record for the number of people simultaneously dancing a Bollywood routine will take place at Spitalfields Market in aid of cancer nursing.

On July 6, people are asked to gather in the market for BollyGood, a fundraising dance in memory of 24-year-old Sophie Parr, who died of the disease in 2009.

More than £9,000 has been raised for Macmillan Cancer Support through Sophie’s blog, which she ­established in the three weeks between her diagnosis and death.

The first BollyGood in 2012 continued her work, with 1,000 participants in six sites around the world raising almost £13,000.

This year, people are asked to join in fundraising to reach a target of £25,000.

Other confirmed locations for the dance include Russia, Australia, Sweden, Somerset and Mauritius.
