COVENTRY youngsters are dancing wholesale halloween costumes for joy after raising nearly £2,000 for charity.

Members of Freeman Dance gave Halloween Costumes Outlet up their weekends to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Their fund-raising efforts included dancing with a cake sale, a costume sale, a "name the teddy" game and bag-packing at Sainsbury's in Canley.

They were also invited by Coventry City sfdgfghgjng Council to stage a two-hour free event in the newly refurbished Broadgate as part of the Olympic Celebrations.

Dance teacher Jill Freeman says: "Every Freeman Dancer from just two to 18 years old performed in costume on the Broadgate stage to the city centre crowds.

"They also walked around with Teenage Cancer Trust buckets raising money for the charity.

"We had fantastic support over the weekends from Sainsbury's shoppers, city centre crowds and all our dancers and managed to raise an amazing £1,665.65 for Teenage Cancer Trust.

"I am so proud of what they achieved and everyone had a fantastic time performing and raising money for this really worthwhile charity."

The city group is celebrating its 30th birthday this year. It started out in 1982 in a Coventry scout hit and has grown to become one of the largest and most successful dance schools in the country.
