Woodford Green pupils busted out their best dance moves to raise money for charity.

Children attending Avon House Preparatory School, High Road, took part in a danceathon on Friday, March 23 to raise £450 for Sport Relief.

Morris house captain Adam Harif, 11, helped to organise the event along with teacher Aaron Bowers.

Adam said he wanted to support Sport Relief as it gets people “involved and active”.

He said: “Thanks to Sport Relief, projects can be funded that increase awareness of good mental health in the UK.

“As a boy I feel it is important to be able to talk about your emotions and feelings without worrying that you would be laughed at.

“(The money also supports) the fight against malaria which is still a major killer and also helps to improve the lives of mothers and babies around the world because poor maternal health kills a new mum every two minutes.”
