Money raised from the event will go to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation which aims to provide help and hope to people affected by lung cancer.

The Tapathon was created back in 1997 by Derek and Vera Hamer, who were friends with Roy Castle, a dancing entertainer and musician, who died from lung cancer.

After 15 years, dance teacher Janet Austin from Brighouse took over the role of organiser.

Since the event began over two decades ago, over £276,000 has been raised for charity.
