Swapping lager and lime for leotards and leggings are staff at Doncaster JD Wetherspoon pub, The Old Angel in Cleveland Street.

Seven male employees have agreed to take part in a daring dance event, all in the name of charity.

Calum Coffield, Garry Sykes, Garry Fromont, Ben Lord, Damon Culkin, Rik Duffy and Mike Boundy (pictured) have been challenged to perform Beyonce’s Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) routine on a Saturday night in the pub - but first punters must raise £500 for nominated charity Clic Sargent.

Team leader and event organiser Rachel Hague said the men, going under the name Boyonce, had already been busy rehearsing. She is hoping people will dig deep to help raise the necessary cash.

Colleague, bar associate Amanda Mullett jokingly said: “They all look far too comfortable in leotards!”

CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.

It provides clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life.

A spokesman said: “We are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.”

Donations to the Doncaster dancers can be via collection tins at the pub or online http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/boyonce

Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) was released by Columbia Records on October 13, 2008.

The dance routine was first parodied in 2008 on an episode of TV show Saturday Night Live.

The clip has won several awards, including Video of the Year at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

It is hoped the staff’s performance will take place on the evening of Saturday May 17 at the pub.
