Dance students and staff from Doncaster College and University Centre Doncaster have raised £780 in memory of Aimee Garnett from the proceeds of their annual show.
It was decided to dedicate the show to Aimee, who sadly passed away in November 2009 as she was in the second year of her National Diploma in Dance course.
60 dance students from a number of different courses worked in partnership with each other to create pieces for the performance. The work showcased was part of their training and directly linked to achieving their qualifications.
The performance was entitled ‘Level Steps’ and staged in the Harvey Theatre at the University Centre Doncaster, High Melton.
Aimee’s mum, Amanda, who brought along baby Harley, received the cheque on behalf of CRY, from a group of students and staff at the Harvey Theatre recently.
Marie Wroe, Course Leader for Dance, said, “It meant so much being able to raise money and also awareness of such an important charity. The students were very supportive of it and produced excellent dance pieces and as Aimee loved to dance, what better way of showing that.”
