Bourne teenagers tackle a 48-hour dance challenge to raise money for Wood Grange Care Home

Two teenage dancers set themselves a 48-hour challenge to support a care home project.

During the last week Poppy Hunt and Dolly Manzon have dedicated most of their free time to learning and performing new dance routines.

They aimed to clock up 48 hours of dancing to raise money for a new sensory room at Wood Grange Care Home in Bourne.

The 15-year-olds have uploaded each routine to Facebook and will end their challenge with a six-hour stint at the care home on Friday evening.

Residents will watch their finale through the windows.

Care home worker Kayleigh White said: “Dancing is a passion for these girls. We were so pleased when they came forward to help with our fundraising.

“It will be nice for the residents to watch them finish.”

Care home staff have already been fundraising for the project themselves by hosting sweepstakes, selling home-made poppies and waxing the chests of their male colleagues.

They aim to raise £500 which will pay for a room in the home to be transformed into a sensory area.

Kayleigh said: “We’ve got a room set aside that isn’t being used to its full potential. Turning it into a sensory room will really help the residents with their cognitive skills and benefit them emotionally."
