On Saturday 19th December travellers at London Euston Station were treated to a dance flash mob arranged by heart charity Little Hearts Matter.
Little Hearts Matter offer full support to families when their child has been diagnosed with half a heart and in a bid of entertaining the public, and raising awareness and funds, they arranged a flash mob at one of the busiest train stations in the country.
The flash mob dancers performed to a high energy mix of Christmas songs and pop hits whilst many travellers recorded the action on their mobile phones. Once the dancers had finished, a group of volunteers serenaded the passengers with a selection of carols whilst they waited for their trains and also had buckets to collect donations.
Little Hearts Matter's Fundraising Co-ordinator, John Howell, said: “It was really exciting to see the flash mob come together so brilliantly. I know the dancers have been working very hard on it for a while and they were all wonderful. The carol singing on the station was a lot of fun and it was great to see and hear people singing with us or just tapping out the rhythm on their suitcases!
“Some of the families we work with have travelled here specially and it means a lot to have them at events like this. We could not have done any of this without our amazing volunteers who have danced, sung and collected magnificently. We'd also like to say a big thank you Virgin Trains for allowing us to hold the day and for being so helpful. Merry Christmas.”
The charity raised £600 from the bucket collections and would like to thank the generous travellers at London Euston Station.
