On Saturday, April 7 at around 2.30pm, a 50-strong mob of dancers surprised shoppers in the Harford Bridge branch of Tesco.

Lead by zumba instructor Rachel Evans, the event was the group’s 10th flash mob promoting the importance of carrying out monthly breast health checks.

Speaking after the event, Ms Evans said: “The Breast Cancer Awareness Zumba flash mob was an amazing emotionally charged 15mins.

“Dancing alongside the 50-strong ‘mob’ were three students who have been through breast cancer and have now emerged the other side.

“Many had tears in their eyes when we reached the final song.”

The event raised more than £60 for Cancer Research UK, a collection will continue at the Tesco branch until the end of the week.
