Nursery school children grabbed their dancing shoes to help AIDS victims in South Africa.

Toddlers from Sunny Bright Day Nursery in Sprotbrough have raised more than £800 from a day-long danceathon.

They handed over the money to David Sturdy, who is travelling to the country for a ten-day trip as part of a group helping sufferers.

David, pastor at Mount Hermon Community Church in Bentley, started the event by dancing with the children to African music.

David, whose grandson attends the nursery, said he was left humbled by the children’s efforts.

He added: “It is amazing for a small group of little kids to raise such a fantastic amount.

“I am thrilled to bits.”
