A DEVOTED dad is preparing to embark on a 23 mile trek to raise money for the dance school his daughter and wife attend.

Trevor Hallam, 36, of Bryson Close, Thorne, took on the challenge for Bodyrockers to help fund its move to new premises in King Street.

His seven-year-old daughter Caitlin and wife Emma both attend classes at the school currently based in the Assembly Rooms, Fieldside.

Trevor who will run from Rotherham to Thorne on Saturday said: “I just wanted to do something to help out.

“I am apprehensive about it because it is a long way but I have done challenges in the past like the Three Peaks challenge.

“I’ve been training for it, probably not as much as I should’ve been but I’m confident I can do it.”

Trevor has already managed to raise £450 for the charity trek.

Trevor added: “Caitlin and Emma love the dance class, Caitlin come homes and practises all the time, so I wanted to do whatever I could to help out.”

The dance school is moving from the Assembly Rooms in Fieldside to King Street thanks to a grant from Success Doncaster and the help of landlord Neil Craven, but still need cash to refurbish the building.

Victoria Curran of Bodyrockers said: “Trevor came to us with the idea.

“His whole family have been so fantastic and supportive it means so much because we will be able to use the money to furnish our new venue.”

Victoria is also hoping the move will allow her to expand the number of classes that currently include adults Zumba, hip hop and Bokwa. For more information about the classes contact Victoria on 07814358953.
