Hip hop help to Thailand

Hellen Hospers, a Heart to Heart hip hopper from Alstonville, shares a smile with her new friend Bo outside a house in Thailand that was built through Heart to Heart fundraising.

The Heart to Heart Hip Hop dance group has been performing and raising money for a small fishing village in Thailand called Nam Khem (north of Phuket) since the tsunami which destroyed the lives of many in the area.

Money raised goes towards building the volunteer village and providing workshops which will be run from this centre.

Sue has since returned from Thailand and she and hip hop teacher Cassie Warman run Heart to Heart Hip Hop to help the people of Nam Khem.

The fundraising hip hop dance courses recommence this week in Alstonville and run till the end of the month. Five weeks of hip hop for $30, which goes to help the people of Nam Khem.

This first course for the year will be held at the Alstonville Dance Studio. Students will be split into three groups (junior, intermediate and senior) and everyone is welcome.

To join or for more info phone Sue Whiteman on 6686 2520.
