8-hour dance marathon for Headway East London for those with stamina
A DANCE marathon is planned in London’s East End for anyone with the stamina to stay on their feet for eight hours.
It’s the third annual shindig in aid of Headway East London brain injury support charity, which is being held at Bethnal Green’s Rich Mix arts centre on February 26.
“We hope to set a new record in the number of dancers,” said organiser Sandra Ma, “Our target is raising �20,000 by dancers being sponsored.
“We need the support from anyone, whether they have been affected by brain injury or just love dancing.”
They can take part, whatever ability or age, in the endurance challenge from 3pm to 11pm.
