A MORRIS dancing side walked more than 15 miles from Kinmel Bay to Llandudno to keep their finances healthy.
Thirty supporters and dancers, aged three to 60, raised £900 for Bodelwydden Marblettes.
Founder Kathryn Jones, said: “It was brilliant. Going over the Little Orme was a killer, as everyone was shattered and they had a mountain to climb.
“But it was a gorgeous day and it was lovely walking along the coast.
“We were walking for five hours and stopped off at the Pantri in Pensarn to let the little ones have some lunch.”
The side, set up just 18 months ago with eight children, two of whom were Kathryn’s, has ballooned into a 50-strong side and last year saw them take home a slew of gold medals.
Bodelwyddan-based Kathryn said: “I started the club in 2010, basically because of boredom. There was nothing for the children to do in Bodelwyddan. I just had the urge to do something, and I was having a chat with my friend Lizzie Parry who used to dance years ago, and she said if I organsied it, she would teach it.”
The money raised will go toward funding tuition for the young dancers as the competition season begins at the end of March.
Kathryn said: “Our first competition is in Connah’s Quay and we’re looking forward to it. We can’t wait. There’s excitement, anxiety, stress! We still have so much to do sorting dresses out, as well as ribbons and bells.”
The Marblettes practise every Tuesday at 6pm to 8pm in Bodelwyddan Community Centre and the group is open to new members.
