Friday 11th March saw Dr Kershaw’s partner up with Willow Wood Hospice, to bring our very own version of Strictly Come Dancing to the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Dr Kershaw’s and Willow Wood Hospices' dancers had been training for many weeks to perfect their dance moves in a bid to be crowned the Strictly Dance 2022 Winners and to be presented with the coveted glitterball trophy. Each dance couple took to the dance floor to showcase their moves, whilst also raising an incredible amount of money for their local hospice.
With over £28,000 raised to support patient care at Dr Kershaw’s, Strictly Dance, the first physical event since the start of the pandemic, proved to be a great success! Dr Kershaw’s dancers were set a collective fundraising total of £10,000 and surpassed their target reaching over £18,000. Along with ticket sales, a silent auction and raffle on the night also brought in much needed funds for both of our Hospices.
Thank you to all our incredible dancers, and also to our Strictly Dance sponsors Nisyst and Charities Buying Group, as well as everyone who supported this event including: Fierce Dance, Angela’s Dance, Tycoons, Accent Dance Company, Boundary Arts Centre, Sarah England School of Dance, Janice Hughes School of Dance, New Image PR, C&C Catering, Wedding Event Planners, Morrison’s Denton (flowers), Morrison’s Hyde (flowers), Morrison’s Dukinfield (flowers), Manchester College (hair and make-up), Katie Kelly and Cheryl Lomax from Glam and Go (hair and make-up), Stephanie Ivelle from Stephanie’s Studio (make-up), Guy Salmon Jaguar Land Rover Stockport (Land Rover Experience), Dr Kershaw’s Hospice Volunteers and Willow Wood Hospice Volunteers.
