‘Let’s Dance from the Heart and Fundraise’

Helen Davis and friends hope to get 300 people rocking to ‘Oops Upside Your Head’ in an attempt to break the current world record, which currently stands at 258 people.

The idea came about during a fundraising night in Noir, Whitley Bay in October last year, as the dance floor filled with friends and family of Julie Goulding, when the DJ began to play the classic 70s funk anthem. Helen applied to the GWR shortly afterwards, and planning began.

Everyone there that night was showing support for the Whitley Bay mum of three, and businesswoman, who at aged just 51, has been diagnosed with secondary terminal cancer.

The event will take place on 12.00 Sunday 13th May at the athletics pitch at Churchill Playing Fields, Whitley Bay and open to everyone ages 12+.

Local Compare and DJ Steve Keys will be there to warm up the crowds along with Norham High School teacher and Clubbercise instructor Melanie James, who will be leading the event on stage.

It’s £5 to take part all funds raised will go towards Julies JustGiving page which has been set up to help with costs of Julies treatments. Helen is also encouraging participants to wear pink, for Positively Pink Breast Cancer Support at North Tyneside General Hospital where Julie regularly goes for treatment, and will also be benefiting from a share of the funds.

C’mon Whitley Bay. Let’s show our support for an amazingly brave beautiful women, her friends and dance from the heart and fundraise.
