DANCERS descended on a Blackburn shopping centre to promote a charity fundraiser.

The Flashmob at The Mall saw shoppers stare in amazement as the performers whirled around the makeshift dancefloor outside the Ryman stationey store.

They were promoting the Strictly Starlight Walk, which will take place on June 28 in aid of the East Lancashire Hospice.

The sponsored challenge will start and finish at The Soccerdome in Guide.

Entry costs £10 and the walk will start at 10pm.
