Members of the Bishop Grosseteste University Students’ Union (BGSU) Dance Society participated in a national ‘Tapathon’ event raising over £500 for BBC Children in Need.

The Society were taking part in ‘Tapathon 2018’ a national event held in hundreds of different locations throughout the UK. Involving tap enthusiasts of all ages and fitness levels in attempt to break a world record and raise funds for charity.

Following two months of intense preparation they tapped endlessly for six minutes wearing their Children in Need t-shirts. Following overwhelming support from the BGSU community (both on the day and after) the record attempt resulted in £587.20 being raised, far exceeding the original target of £200.

Keeley Pearson, Vice President, was astounded by the unbelievable dedication of the Dance Society and their commitment to the Tapathon this year:

“BBC Children in Need is a charity that is close to my heart and essential in supporting vulnerable young people so to raise such an incredible figure fills me with pride. Congratulations everyone!”

Involvement in the Tapathon continues another successful year of fundraising by the Dance Society. Not only have they already raised £1083.28 in the 2018/19 academic year, with another charity themed dance session to go, an open technique session to raise money for their competition, and four Christmas market performances, the Society’s Exec Team hope to reach £1300 by Christmas.
