The Stacey Mowle conga at Gravesend Rugby Club


About 1,000 people danced their way around Gravesend Rugby Club on Sunday in a mass conga event for seven-year-old Stacey Mowle, who has a rare form of cancer.

Stacey, of Trafalgar Road, Gravesend, has neuroblastoma and her family want to send her to America for specialist treatment which costs £500,000.

Family friend and organiser Steve Nash said: “This has really captured the Gravesend community and a lot of people are talking about it.

“We raised around £4,000 which will be great for the appeal.”

A Stacey Mowle Appeal single, available on iTunes for 79p, was also launched. Family and friends are hoping to get the single into the charts.
