Northumberland County Council have challenged Local Authority Fostering Services from across the country to a Jerusalema Dance relay to raise awareness of fostering.
The Jerusalema dance craze, that went viral earlier this year, originated as a Zulu dance. It was then made famous by a dance group in Angola who attempted to do the dance whilst eating their dinner- without dropping any!
Performing whilst eating would definitely have been outside our capabilities, but on Thursday 28th May, our fostering families, fostering teams and senior managers came together to have a go and perform our very own Foster4 version of the dance. With the magnificent backdrop of a very sunny Walton Hall and Gardens in Warrington, it was a great opportunity to get together and do something active to help raise awareness of fostering.
We were challenged by Liverpool City Council, and we are now passing the baton on to Reading Council’s Brighter Futures For Children service.
