He has raised more than £3,300

GREENHAM Trust chief executive and dancing sensation Chris Boulton is down to the final three hours of his 12-hour fundraising Northern Soul dancing challenge.

Mr Boulton is dancing one hour a night for 12 nights to raise money for the trust’s coronavirus appeal.

Since starting the challenge on Monday, April 20, he has raised almost £3,300 – which will be matched by the trust itself.

Mr Boulton said: “It’s a fantastic number of people who’ve donated and the amount of money raised is quite amazing.

“My target was £3,000, but we’re already through that so we’ve revised the target for £5,000.

“I’ve burned so many calories – on day one it was around 550 so it’s around 5,000 in total.

“The thing that’s really suffering is our living room floor, which started off quite well-polished, but is now looking very grubby – that’ll be my job after this.”

Mr Boulton hinted that there could be a surprise or two in the offing for Friday’s final night of dancing. He said: “We’re planning what to do with the final one. We have some disco lights, so we have something a bit special coming up.

“It’s seven until eight and will be something different for sure to make it fun.”

Greenham Trust’s Emergency Coronavirus Appeal now stands at just over £268,000, with around £86,000 of that coming from public donations.

The trust is offering to match up to £100,000 donated by the public.
