On Friday afternoon, pupils aged from three years old wore fancy dress and tapped along to raise funds, while older pupils and adults got moving to the music in the evening.

The group raised a total of £1,668 and thanked everyone who got involved.

Parents and toddlers at Whoosh Learning’s Messy Play groups also joined in with the fundraising fun.

The Haywards Heath group, which meets on Mondays, and the Cuckfield group, which meets on Fridays, held Pudsey Bear themed sessions last week.
