ONE benefactor has stepped forward to help Bolshoi Ballet hopeful Tala Lee-Turton of Wombwell - but she needs more sponsorship to get to Russia!
A donation from a supporter who wishes to be anonymous means Tala’s mum Sara is almost half-way to reaching her target of £15,000.
This is the sum needed to pay for 16-year old Tala’s first year including tuition and travel fees.
A sponsored zumba and fun day fundraiser is planned for July 29 at Kingstone Sports Centre at Barnsley, and Sara and Tala will be bag-packing for funds on July 21 at M&S Meadowhall.
Sara said: “There’s still a long way to go but the recent donation is a terrific boost to the appeal! I am very touched that someone who doesn’t know Tala wants to help in this way! “ Visit www.gofundme.com/m0jvk to donate any amount.
