THE YMCA in Scarborough has received a major cash boost thanks to Rowlies Academy of Dance.

The dance school gave the proceeds from their summer show to the organisation, which came to £3,939.02.

Rowlies ran their show, titled Big Night Out, alongside the YMCA’s own show The Wizard of Oz, during the summer season.

YMCA executive director Steve Marsh said: “It’s an absolutely amazing amount of money, which will go towards ensuring that other people have the same opportunity to perform on stage and develop their confidence.

“We’re incredibly grateful to Julie and Jo. Rowlies are based here and they’ve done this kind of thing before.

“It’s becoming a yearly thing. Both shows went really well and they complemented each other beautifully.”

Mr Marsh added that The Wizard of Oz attracted 1,000 more people than last year’s summer show and some people came back to see it numerous times.

He explained that the YMCA receives no Government funding, so donations like this one are essential in securing the future of the organisation.
