Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists Christopher Buttle and Lexie Joinson were the star attractions at a Worksop fundraising event. 

The 11-year-old champion ballroom and Latin dancing pair shimmied their way around the floor at a tea dance at Manton Club and helped raise over £500 for Bluebell Wood. 

The event was organised by Bluebell Wood's Worksop support group, with people invited to join the afternoon dance to raise funds for children and young adults whose lives are just too short.

Lesley Percival from Bluebell Wood’s Worksop support group said: “This was a successful tea dance, made all the more special by the dance demonstration from Christopher and Lexie. What a treat for everyone. We’d like to say a big thank you to both of them, their mums Ali and Amanda and everyone who came along and supported the event.' 

Melanie Rose, Community Fundraiser for Bluebell Wood in Worksop, said: “Christopher and Lexie have a very busy schedule so it was a big treat and a wonderful surprise to see them there.  Every penny raised will help families across our region to make special memories together.”
