Scarborough dance star Matt Flint hot-footed it into town to support the launch of Danceday UK.

The former Raincliffe School pupil, who shot to fame when he won TV show So You Think You Can Dance, led a group of dancers in Scarborough town centre to launch of a fundraising event on September 21 in aid of the Firstlight Trust.

The event will involve schools, business, groups and individuals - anyone can take part by organising a dance-related fundraiser of their own.

Firstlight Trust is a national charity which has set up its first base in Scarborough. It helps ex-service personnel and ex-emergency services workers, and their families, who may need extra support.

Dorinda Wolfe Murray, a founding trustee, said: “Saturday was great fun. Lots of people turned up and Matt was a complete star.

“The Danceday UK event is all about having a good time and we’re hoping as many people as possible will take part.”

Matt added: “The launch was really good. Lots of kids joined in and quite a few adults too - everyone seemed to enjoy it!” 132242a/b
