On 11th-12th September 2015 Lorraine Kelly will be taking to the road to fundraise for children affected by poverty. Following her “Shimmy Across Scotland”, which raised £100,000 last year, she’s putting her dancing shoes back on. Joined by her friend Maxine Jones, the ladies will be getting us all moving with a 24-hour ceilidh to raise as much money as possible for The STV Children's Appeal.
From Friday 11th to Saturday 12th September, Lorraine will travel across Scotland to join as many fundraising ceilidhs as possible. Groups across the world will be encouraged to host their own events, recording them to be included in special STV programming. All these fantastic efforts will support the 1 in 5 children affected by poverty in Scotland.

across the globe to join us and host their own fundraising ceilidhs to help
raise as much as possible for this vital cause. It’ll be a challenge to keep
going but hopefully with support from fellow dancers around the world, I’ll get
