Denstone Factor Winners Present Cheque

Organisers of Denstone Factor 2012 visited the Step 2 Dance studio in Uttoxeter’s Market Square last week to hand over a cheque to the Rakemark Respite charity.

Members of the winning dance ensemble Karisma Krew,  under the instruction of dance teacher Aimee Byatt,  showed Debbie Andrew,  Glynn Walker and Liz Ratcliffe,  from Denstone Factor,  some more of their street dance moves.   The gathering was also treated to very special performance from six year old Morgan McGarry whose mum Sue McGarry set up the Rakemark Respite charity which operates out of the “Treetops”  venue at Picknalls First School in Uttoxeter.

Morgan -  who attends the holiday clubs at Rakemark Respite -  danced to Telling the World by Taio Cruz ably led by Lucy Barbour and Holly Civil.

Rakemark Respite is a local organisation set up to support the families of special needs children through school holidays.  Its aim is to continue the routine and stimulation that is so crucial to the 4 to 8 year olds in their care.

Debbie Andrew said “We are delighted to support the work of such a worthwhile project.  Sue works tirelessly in helping others,  and it is good to see money raised locally being used for local families in this way!
