It’s time to put on your dancing shoes and drag out your gladrags to show your school’s support for cancer research.

Macmillan Cancer Support’s “Dress Up and Dance”, which returns to schools and nurseries for its third year on June 19, encourages teachers to ask their students to get dressed up and have a dance in exchange for a £2 donation.

Those who sign up will receive a free fundraising pack that contains teaching resources, including online dance routines, cut-out animal masks, educational activity sheets and assembly plans.

Simon Phillips, interim director of fundraising at Macmillan, says: “Dress Up and Dance is not only great fun, but an easy way for teachers and group leaders to get kids exercising and expressing themselves in the name of cancer support. We can’t wait to hear what you’ve all got planned.”
