Ziggy and his friends at the toddler and preschool dance group Diddi dance took part in a nationwide challenge to raise money for Caudwell Children, a charity that supports children with autism.
More than 15 smaller-than-average superheroes – and their parents – completed the ‘Watch Me Fly’ dance lesson yesterday at the Bedhampton Community Centre, Bedhampton Road, Havant.
Ziggy’s mum, Jenny, 37, said: ‘Ziggy raised over £30 through his fundraising page – he received a lot of donations from family and friends.
‘He goes to the dance group every Monday, and he loves it.
‘Diddi dance is great at getting parents involved – If you’re joining in and having fun, the kids have more fun.’
Funds raised by Ziggy and children who took part will support the Caudwell International Children’s Centre, the UK’s first independent purpose built centre dedicated to autism.
Liz Chisnall, who leads Diddi dance South East Hampshire and Chichester said, ‘We are delighted to be supporting Caudwell Children in this exciting way.
‘Its a nice way to get the children to think about helping others.
‘It helps them to think about abstract ideas.’
Diddi dance, which has more than 13 franchises across Hampshire, will be holding ‘Watch Me Fly’ lessons across the county for the rest of the week.
The lessons are open to all budding dancers aged 16 months to five years old.
Liz said: ‘It’s really inclusive.
