A Camborne man has danced to the same song on repeat for 24 hours to raise money for a local Foodbank.

For the third consecutive year, Dean Pascoe has danced non-stop to Africa by Toto in an incredible effort to support the Camborne, Pool and Redruth Foodbank, run by charity Transformation CPR, provide food to those who need it in the local area.

Taking place at Beacon Cricket Club, Dean’s dancing saw him take 113,000 steps, the equivalent of more than 50 miles.

Several visitors came along to show their support and help him get through it, including team members from Transformation CPR.

His previous two efforts in undertaking this physically and mentally tough challenge has seen him raise over £12,000 for the foodbank charity.

Dean first came up with the idea of doing a 24-hour danceathon after he lost his job in 2019. After experiencing financial struggles, Dean saw this as a way to give something back to the community.

His inspiration to raise money for the CPR Foodbank came after he received food boxes for him and his family during his financially difficult time.

For this year’s outing he has raised more than £6,500 on his GoFundMe page which has seen more than 330 donations from the public.
