Flash mob celebrate 20 years at the top
SOUTHEND YMCA celebrated its 20th anniversary by staging a “flash mob” event in the town’s High Street.
The display began when a passer-by gave some money to one of the dancers, posing as a homeless person, with a sign reading, “Will dance for money”.
It prompted the rest of the cast to break into dance in front of unsuspecting shoppers.
Syrie Cox, chief executive of Southend YMCA, said: “We wanted to raise awareness of Southend YMCA, youth homelessness and poverty in our area.”
