A Suffolk dance group have put their toe-tapping skills to the test as they took part in a special warm up before the first ever Comic Relief Danceathon on Sunday.

The special session saw people in the area of Rumburgh get together and loosen their limbs and move their feet ahead of the marathon dance event on Sunday.

The event was organised by Georgina Harrison, from the village.

She said:“When I heard about the Danceathon I simply couldn’t resist getting involved.

“I contacted other groups in the area to see if they wanted to get involved too, so we could make the event bigger and better.

“We’ve done this warm up to show the community how easy it is to get involved and raise some cash for Comic Relief.”

The Comic Relief Danceathon takes place on Sunday and the charity is calling on fundraisers to get together at home, in village halls, gyms or any location and dance non-stop for six hours.

Fundraisers can follow a live, star-studded Danceathon at The SSE Arena, Wembley on the BBC Red Button. More than 2,000 fundraisers will dance non-stop at the fun filled Wembley event, hosted by Claudia Winkleman, with a host of famous faces set to join in too.

A range of genres will be played during the six hours, from ballroom and musical theatre to 1970s disco and 1990s rave.

The money raised by the event will be spent in Suffolk, across the UK and across Africa, helping vulnerable and disadvantaged people living incredibly tough lives.
