MARC Beckett, who attended Passmores School between 2001 and 2006, is stepping outside his comfort zone this Saturday to raise money for the cancer charity Teens Unite.

Teens Unite supports young people fighting cancer to live their best life, while others search for a cure. The charity inspire young people to recognise their potential now and in the future and empower them to live every moment to the full. It is said that when you’re faced with cancer, plenty of people will tell you what you can’t do, but Teens Unite show young people what they can do; not letting the ‘c’ word hold them back or define who they are.

On Saturday, Marc, (34) is competing at the infamous Strictly Come Dancing Ballroom event at the Grosvenor House in London, in front of 600 people, in support of Teens Unite. Marc set himself a fundraising target of £3,000 when he signed up for the challenge in February this year and has so far raised just over £2,600. He hopes to hit his target by the weekend.

Marc told Your Harlow “I felt that I needed a challenge in my life, I wanted to learn something new, and I was prepared to experience something that would take me outside my comfort zone. I’m doing all those things and supporting a great cause at the same time. I has been a challenge but I’m up for it and really looking forward to Saturday.”
