A group of dads have put on their dancing shoes to raise funds for a charity close to their hearts.

Richard Jardine, Grant Lyall, Adam Lyall, Glenn Miller, Andrew Mencnarowski and Scott Ramsay are burning rubber this Sunday in the Pedal for Scotland Glasgow to Edinburgh cycle raising money for the British Heart Foundation, in memory of good friend George McAllister.

George passed away in
July and as the husband of Marion Sweeney, the pair ran the popular dance school in Linlithgow.

The School of Dance celebrated its 25th anniversary in the summer with a spectacular show.

Marion’s friend Sarah Jardine said: “It was a community of dancers and their families that has been left devastated by the sudden loss of George on July 28 this year to a heart attack.

“George was a very kind and generous person who worked quietly but tirelessly for the dance school so that all of the children could enjoy numerous opportunities to dance, and he knew every child by name and shoe size!

“He had a smile and a kind word for everyone and will be sadly missed by all who were lucky enough to know him.”

The dads will also be joined on the cycle by Fiona and Rachel Hendrie. To donate to the cause go to www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/CycleForGeorge
