Dynamite 2The event, which is being held at Middleton Conservative Club from 7:30 to 11pm, is part of their drive to raise funds so that the squad can compete at world championships in Virginia USA next year.

Danielle Watkins who runs the group explains:

“It is really important that everyone in the squad can go. None of us have got much money, but we stick together and raise the money we need to carry on and compete. As it says on our hoodies – Don’t dream it, Be it

“Dynamite is like a family. Dancing brings people together, the mums as well as the young people. We really hope the bigger family of Middleton will come and support us”.

The evening will include a short performance from Dynamite as well as raffles, bingo, food and of course a disco. Tickets are £2 in advance or £3 on the door. Contact Danielle for tickets on 07525 836960.
