Dance School Award to Help for Heroes

A dance school’s show has raised hundreds of pounds for the Help for Heroes charity.

Pupils of The Kathleen Cresswell School of Dance performed at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre this month where ticket sales and a raffle raised £1,000.

Private Jack Hawksley, 2nd Battalion Mercian Regiment, Frances Washbourne Help for Heroes Representative and Naval Airman Tom Birch, pictured left to right, attended the cheque presentation.

Proceeds were boosted by a bucket collection by the servicemen which raised £108 and a local businessman who gave a further donation of £100.

The principal, Kathleen Cresswell, has thanked everyone who contributed towards the success of the show and cheque total.
