A DANCE event with plenty of bounce to it is pulling in more volunteers to raise money for a worthy cause.

The Big Blokes Boogie Bounce event for Sport Relief will be held at the Chique Physique studio in Cromwell Street, Hartlepool.

It will involve men taking part in a sponsored 45-minute workout on a trampoline with all proceeds going to Sport Relief.

And since our last report on the event in Dance Fever, more men have signed up.

Studio owners Jasmin Beckett and Abbie Rowbotham will be holding the event and Abbie said: “We have now got about 16 men who will be doing it.”

The cost of watching the fun - which will see up to 25 men per session jump for charity - is £1.

Abbie explained why there was plenty of interest. She added: “At the moment, it is mainly the wives who are trying to get their husbands to do it, or it’s the girlfriends telling their boyfriends to get involved.

“They are all telling us it is for a good cause.”

Jasmin and Abbie will lead the way on the sessions in which men will pay £10 to sign up and then be encouraged to raise as much sponsorship money themselves as they can.

Up to 25 men a day can take up the challenge on Saturday, March 14 at 3pm, and Sunday, March 15 at 12pm.

And they are being encouraged to come along in fancy dress to add to the fun experience.

Jasmin, who is from the Burn Valley area of Hartlepool, has known Abbie, who is from the Fens area, since they were both students at Manor College of Technology in Hartlepool.

Both of them went on to study at Middlesbrough College where they achieved a Btec National Diploma in performing arts.

And both went to study at Phil Winston’s Theatreworks stage school academy in Blackpool.

Now they’re hoping to put up to 50 men through their fundraising paces for Sport Relief.
