Strictly magic lights up charity night

THE glitz and glamour of Strictly Come Dancing was brought to life this week in unusual surroundings.

Staff and pupils from Churchill Academy and Sixth Form dressed up for the first Staffly Come Dancing the school has hosted and filled the hall with entertaining music and dance.

With all the thrills and spills the BBC show has created in recent years, the brave contestants had a lot to live up to and they did not disappoint during the successful charity night. Staff members Mark Collins and his partner Jessica Huzzey scooped first prize, while dozens of pupils put on special performances during the intervals.

A collection among the audience raised �120 for the National Blood and Transport Service and thoughts are now turning to how to make the competition even better next year.
