Bromsgrove Editorial 18th May, 2019 Updated: 18th May, 2019

YOUNGSTERS from Bromsgrove are among those set to join TV stars Dick and Dom to take on the ‘Watch Me Fly’ challenge, writes Elliot Ball.

The challenge is aimed at raising money and awareness for autistic children through the charity Caudwell Children, the first independent UK purpose-built centre dedicated to youngsters with autism.

As part of the ‘National Children’s Activity Week’ each student at Chloe May’s Dance Academy in Catshill and the one in Kidderminster will complete a series of dance challenges when they ditch their usual dance kit for fancy dress.

Academy principal Chloe May said: “This is a cause very close to our hearts as we promote an inclusive environment at the Academy, where every child can achieve success.”

The Academy will donate £5 for every child who joins the ‘Watch Me Fly’ challenge and the series of free trial classes that they’re holding this week.
