PEEBLES tapped its way to a massive donation for this year's Children In Need, raising an impressive £1050 for Pudsey.

Dozens of dancers took part in the national Tapathon which was enjoyed by countless dancers up and down the UK on Sunday, November 17.

The dancing event was created to raise money for the BBC's Children in Need, but also to try to break the world record for the largest tap dancing event.

The Fiona Henderson School of Dance (FHSD) hosted the event at its dance studios last weekend and organisers said: "A huge thank you to all the dancers who turned up and danced their hearts out as well as all their friends and families who came along and supported them and enjoyed the teas and coffees and Pudsey-coloured home baking."

There was even a special appearance from Pudsey Bear himself, posing for pictures and cheering on the dancers.

The money raised also included a fantastic contribution from the sale of home-made Children In Need spotted hair scrunchies, created by Jill Lapsley and her daughters, both of whom are pupils at FHSD. The scrunchies were also on sale at Kingsland Primary School with organisers also thanking everyone who bought one and added to the marvellous fundraising total.

This year marked the 10th anniversary of the first Tapathon event and every year it attempts to break the official world record for the largest number of dancers taking part in a single event at the same time.

Event organisers have nothing more to do,as they submitted all their evidence to Tapathon HQ and now wait for the final count results with anticipation!
