Dozens of people joined in the charity event on Saturday, including a large group of youngsters from Louise Kate Dance in Kesgrave.

A crowd turned out to watch them dance to Take That’s track Out of Our Heads, aiming to raise £500 for Comic Relief.

The moves were choreographed by Andrew and his business partner, professional dance teacher Judy Benoit Milner. Judy also led the dancing, wearing a big red nose.

The pair have set up Mango Dance Company in Ipswich together, and this was their first flash mob event.

“We had a really good response and it’s great to do something for charity. The thing with a flash mob is, you kind of want to do it again, but the whole thing is that it’s a one-off!”

Judy said: “We were really happy with how it went. We had a fantastic group of dancers.”

Members of Martlesham Leisure also took part, as well as Klowns Karaoke and Mastertronic Karaoke.
