Students from Wildcats Theatre School and Post 16 Academy danced alongside shoppers on Saturday afternoon as part of a national campaign by Tesco's to raise funds for their nominated charity 'Diabetes UK'.

Tesco stores across the UK took part in the largest simultaneous 'Cha Cha Slide' dance at 2.30pm on Saturday 25th January. Children from Wildcats joined Tesco staff in Stamford at the event where funds were raised to go towards the £10 million fund-raising target for Diabetes UK, Tesco's National Charity Partner.

The children were given the chance to practice upstairs in the Tesco warehouse, and then to help teach the staff the moves for the dance.  At 2.30pm children filled the isles and front of the store performing the dance to a large crowd of onlookers. 

Caz Dolby, of Wildcats said "Students from Wildcats were given the chance to take part when Tesco contacted us earlier in the week to ask for support.  We are keen to be involved in local events and this seemed like a fun and enjoyable activity for our students to get involved in.  The children had a fantastic time and everyone was really pleased that they had been given the chance to take part"
