Pat Jackson, principal of Stagecoach Durham, said: “There’s nothing so uplifting as a group dance but this event is made all the more fulfilling as it’s in support of such a worthy cause.

“All of our students are really thrilled to be involved and to show off their moves whilst raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.”

The group meets at Durham High School for Girls on Saturday mornings.
