At the Christmas Fair in Royston High Street last weekend there was a surprise performance to entertain shoppers courtesy of a South Cambs dance school and a hospice charity.
As well as the festive stalls with unique gifts, Santa’s Grotto, food and drink and a Christmas shop window competition, volunteers from Garden House Hospice Care and DanceMatters performed a dance bomb to help promote the hospice’s new event – the Muddy Mayhem 5k Obstacle run, which takes place on March 18 next year.
Hospice fundraisers, staff and volunteers strutted their stuff in the rain – helped and supported by principal Naomi Wallen and members of her dance school – based in Bassingbourn and Litlington.
Cathy White from the hospice said: “It was such a fun activity to do, we couldn’t have done it without Naomi, who choreographed and taught us the routine. We hope all who stopped to watch would have been encouraged to take part.”
Naomi said: “We’re very much a community dance school and so it’s fabulous to be able to support the sterling work of the Garden House Hospice.

“The dancers were aged from five to 60 something and we all had a fabulous afternoon despite the pouring rain.
“DanceMatters believes that everyone should dance and a Dance Bomb is such a great way to get fit, have fun and make people smile! I can’t wait for the next one!”
