Wessex Cancer Trust and Pavilion Dance South West hosted Christmas Business Come Dancing – Thursday 11th December! Eight local businessmen and women teamed up with professional dance partners to raise funds for Wessex Cancer Trust and Parkinson’s Dance at Pavilion Dance South West.
A fantastic night was had by all at the Christmas Business Come Dancing event for Wessex Cancer Trust and Parkinson’s Dance at Pavilion Dance South West (PDSW).
Eight brave individuals took to the dance floor with their professional dance partners, all from PDSW, and with only 6 weeks training wowed the judges with their amazing performances. The trophy was taken by Emily Hingston from Heart Radio and Liam Fraser who left the audience spellbound with their beautiful contemporary dance. However, it was a close competition with Jo Legg also from Heart Radio, dancing Ballroom Latin and Rob Hazel from Flirt cafe dancing Lindyhop, coming a close second and third. The participants of the PDSW Parkinson’s Dance class wowed the audience and staff with a stylish James Bond themed surprise flash mob.
The event was sponsored by the Koh Foundation, who delivered a delicious two course menu for the guests, and Heart Radio with Zoe Hanson hosting the evening. Money raised at the event will be split and donated to both charities.
‘We’ve had an amazing evening here, and people have been so generous with their time and donations. The participants have done such an amazing job and even though there were a few nerves the performances were fantastic. We are so grateful for all the funds raised through this event and want to say a massive thank you to everyone for their support’ –Joanne Howard Fundraising Coordinator at PDSW
