TALENTED young dancers Chris Buttle and Lexie Joinson put their fancy footwork to good use when they helped fund a school’s new sensory room.
Chris (12), a pupil at St Bernard’s Catholic High School, decided his new
school should have the special room to improve the lives of children with special needs and anxiety, like the facility at his old school, Herringthorpe Juniors.
Together with Lexie (also 12), he launch a new fundraising campaign called Sensory Superstars and put on demonstrations aid of the charity.
The £500 raised was more than enough to pay for a new sensory room at St Bernard’s, which was was officially opened by the dance duo themselves last Friday.
“Chris’ mum, Alison Buttle, said: “It was something Chris’s school had already been thinking about so they were on board with it straight away.
“Chris and Lexie now want to raise more money to pay for sensory
rooms in schools across the country.”
