IT’S not only football on offer from Rotherham United’s community programme.

The Millers are now helping girls, aged eight to 14 learn Roma Dance, thanks to a £2,000 donation from the Co-op.

Zanib Rasool, from Rotherham United Community Sports Trust, said: “The grant from The Co-operative will help fund the dance workshops, which will help young women from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds learn new dance techniques, while at the same time boost their confidence, improve their physical health and bring girls from different ethnic groups together.”

The Trust, which has 25 volunteers, will use The Co-operative’s Community Fund grant to deliver a programme of Fusion and Roma dance workshops at Rotherham Arts Centre.
