Natasha Ruffle from Hassocks, West Sussex, raised an incredible £10,000 in June by organising a danceathon in memory of her sister-in-law, Debbie. 

Over 400 family and friends attended Natasha's danceathon at the Hassocks Hotel, dancing for 12 hours straight from midday to midnight!

The community really came together to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity Debbie had previously supported, after being deeply moved by the resilience of young people being treated for cancer.

Gary Cragg, Natasha's brother, has also fundraised for Teenage Cancer Trust in memory of his wife, Debbie - he's taken on both the Dumball Rally and the London Marathon

Together, they have raised over £30,000 to support Teenage Cancer Trust!

Natasha's not done yet - she's planning to hold another event next year, so watch this space!
