24-hour danceathon draws nearer

The Mayor of the Borough of North East Lincolnshire, Councillor Ian Lindley, is hoping to continue efforts to raise money as his danceathon draws closer.

Announced in December, the event will be part of the Mayor’s yearly fundraising campaign. He will be raising money for The Pink Rose Suite Grimsby and the Sunflowers Children’s Action Group.

The Pink Rose Suite is a dedicated breast cancer unit at Grimsby’s Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, providing various services for cancer patients as well as aiding surgical teams across the area.

Sunflowers Children’s Action Group is a charity founded in 2019 to help those suffering from life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. The group look to give young people experiences they will never forget and help families through difficult times.

The Mayor of the Borough of North East Lincolnshire, Councillor Ian Lindley, is hoping to raise £2,000 from the event with an online fundraiser set up to help him reach his target. To donate, visit the Mayor’s fundraiser page on Just giving.

The event will be held from 9am on Thursday 21st March to 9am Friday 22nd March at Grimsby Town Hall. Residents and community groups are also being asked to help out by joining the Mayor throughout the danceathon.

The Mayor of the Borough of North East Lincolnshire, Councillor Ian Lindley, said: “I’m looking forward to putting my training into practice in the near future.

“We have already had some people join up to dance alongside me, but welcome anyone else who wishes to do so. As we get closer to the date, I’m hoping to get as close to my target as possible and hope the people of North East Lincolnshire can help me get there.”
