Comic Relief danceathon by Ely girls


Two Ely girls joined a national event by dancing their way through hundreds of tunes over a blistering six hours at Wembley Arena in London.

Holly Dack and Rhiannon Kelly, both 10, of Lantern School, applied to join more than 2,000 others and pledged to raise cash towards Comic Relief.

They were in great company as they joined a feast of celebrity hosts and party animals in the arena including Kirsty Allthrop Jo Whiley, Kimberly Wyatt, Daisy Lowe and Rufus Hound.

The whole day was screened live on the BBC red button, with a generous supply of different themes.

A different star dance tutor took to the stage to direct the crowds through an intensive half hour of dance styles.

The girls arrived back in Ely shattered but excited. Together they raised more than £400 for Comic Relief by dancing their socks off.
