Lacey organised the event at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre and more than 120 people turned up to support the cause.

The dance raised £956 for Support Dogs which trains dogs to help people suffering from various medical conditions.

Lacey’s mum Katy Sell said: “All the money has gone to the Support Dogs for autism and epilepsy charity.

“We are not getting a dog, Lacey just wanted to raise money for the charity because it’s amazing what they can do with these dogs and because I have epilepsy and her brother Charlie has autism.

“I had my first seizure in April and got diagnosed with the epilepsy in June. Lacey is an amazing daughter and I am so proud of her. The fact she has organised this all by herself is unbelievable.”
