On February 4th Motion Control Dance did some fantastic fundraising! 25 dancers from Motion Control Dance made a difference to a little 5 year old’s life. They took part in a sponsored mannequin challenge and a two hour danceathon, to help Lacey Mae. A Barry girl who is battling a brain tumour, suffered a stroke and has been left with little vision.
The day was also in memory of Motion Control Dance Director’s late husband Robert Mallam who died of a brain tumour in 2004 as she celebrated his birthday by helping Lacey-Mae and her family raise funds to buy sensory toys, a special thermometer, and anything else she needs for her future operations
Ian Bishop (one of our dancer’s father) undertook a world record attempt of punching a bag for 6 hours too – managing 22,500 punches over the time period.
A huge thank you to everyone who sponsored the dancers for the fundraising event and who donated money to support Ian Bishop punch the bag. Ian and Emma Mallam presented Lacey Mae and her father a cheque today for £1212 plus £12 extra cash! So a total of £1224 was raised – they were overwhelmed. Lacey Mae was in high spirits despite having just come back from the hospital – she cant wait to get stronger so she can come and join our Local Motion Dance classes x
