Dress Up and Dance, Macmillan Cancer Support’s national fundraising initiative, will return to schools and nurseries across the UK on Friday 20 June. The dance event, which asks children to don dancewear in return for a £2 donation to the charity, raised over £92,000 in 2013, with more than 900 schools taking part.

Once registered, schools receive a Dress Up and Dance toolkit which includes fun and educational activities to ensure that the event ties in with the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage. The toolkit includes teaching materials and activities to help plan a dance event, as well as a DVD featuring Strictly Come Dancing star Lisa Riley. On the day, children are invited to follow the dance moves on the DVD to create a simple dance number.

“Dance is a fantastic way to connect with primary school children, and is such an accessible way to ensure that children of all ages engage with fundraising to support those affected by cancer”, says Lynda Thomas, Director of Fundraising at Macmillan. 

All the money raised will go towards the charity’s work providing medical, financial, practical and emotional support to the two million people currently living with cancer in the UK.
