Dancers raises money for NSPCC with sponsored walk which touched every neighbourhood of Crawley - picture special
Forty-five dancers from the Louise Ryrie School in Northgate, walked a total of 9 and a half miles touching on every borough of Crawley in a sponsored walk for the NSPCC.
Organiser Louise Ryrie said: ‘We wanted to do something positive together, especially after the last year. We chose the NSPCC to raise money for because we wanted to help all children be safe and happy. We have a lot of children and young people in our school, so it made sense to choose this charity."
