A year ago Sharon Murray was given two months to live but she has defied the odds and now fulfilled her dream to perform with the Black Country’s Dancing Grannies.

Sharon from Bilston is making her way through a fundraising bucket list and was able to tick off another major item by meeting one of her sporting heroes Steve Bull.

The 48-year-old stepped out with the Grannies, aka The Fizzogs, at Stourbridge Carnival and then teamed up with Bully on a trip to Molineux.

“I was very nervous performing with the Grannies,” she said. “It was very hot but they were so kind to me helping me with the moves. I don’t know how many people were there. I was too scared to look.

“Then one of the Fizzogs made contact with Bully through his wife and he arranged to me at Molineux. I’ve always been a big fan. He was lovely.”

Sharon was told last May she had just two months to live but has defied that prognosis.

“I haven’t got time to die,” she said. “I’ve got too many things to do. My bucket list is very long but I can dream, can’t I? I’m raising money for local charities by doing them.”

Sharon wants to do indoor go-karting, an indoor sky dive, go on a limousine ride with Doreen Tipton, a hot air balloon ride, a helicopter ride, and a trip in a Blues Brothers’ car with a tribute act.

She would also like to meet, Josie Lawrence, Noddy Holder and Sir Lenny Henry.

Sharon raised £200 from her two-minute dance with the Grannies and the money will go to an increasing fund, currently standing at £1,200.

She donates the money to local charities, Remember God’s Acre,Outreach For Wolverhampton and High Flyers.
