The Free Style World Came Together For Charlie!!

‘When I stood in the middle of that floor, my whole body was shaking, the cheers from the crowd covered me in goosebumps. I could feel our angel, he was there without a doubt, hearing the cheers get louder and louder when his beautiful face came on the screen, you were all their for our angel, you all danced with him in your hearts….my heart felt like it was going to burst.’

In total Dance for Charlie 2018 Raised and Unbelievable £8000…… We are completely blown away by this !
