TWO sisters are organising a dance night in March next month which they hope will raise enough money to send three teenagers from a children’s home on holiday.

Former professional dancer Stephanie Roe and Sarah Roe, head of dance at Peterborough Regional College, are working together to put on a memorable evening at the Braza Social Club, March, on May 3.

Stephanie Roe works with vulnerable young people at Break, a Norfolk based charity which has set up a children’s home in March.

She said: “The children’s home has only been open for a year and, together with my sister, we have decided to use our dance backgrounds to put on a show which we hope will enable us to raise enough money to give the young people an opportunity to go on holiday as any other family would.

“The children have had traumatic lives and experienced things that no child should have to endure.

The show will showcase the finest dancers in the region, Stephanie said.
