Twelve-hour jiveathon held for Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service

Street dancing and rock and roll took over the New Windsor Community Centre on Saturday as part of a 12-hour jiveathon.


 

Dancers gathered at the centre in Hanover Way from mid-day until midnight in order to raise money for the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.

Trish Murphy, one of the organisers, said that the event had attracted a lot of people.

She said: “We done very well, we have had crowds of people throughout the day.”

Trish along with Marilyn Bowes and Barbara Jenkins organised the event which took place on Saturday.

Approximately £3000 was raised with more money still to be counted. 

Trish, who took part in Race for Life last year, said: “We decided to raise money for Alexander Devine because it is a worthwhile cause.

“There is a need for a hospice in the area, it is needed for the children, it’s very important.”
