A team of local celebrities, including the Citizen’s Amanda Devlin and city MP Iain Stewart, took part in JustDance 2015.

The winner was Vicky Morris, an executive at the TUI Group, with her professional dance partner Adam Edwards.

Ten local school also got together to take part in the Junior JustDance.

The winners of the Group A competition were youngsters from Oxley Park Academy, while Lark Rise won Group B.

The proceeds will now be handed to Keech Hospice Care, who provide emotional and practical support for adults and children diagnosed with a life-limiting condition.
