3.    West Coast Swing UK 10th Year Anniversary Party with Catriona & West Coast Swing UK Team, Windsor, Saturday 22 August – 100% of Profits Donated to Royal Marsden Cancer Charity!

 

WOW! Time does fly! You’re all invited to join us for a full day of dance and fun to mark the occasion of our West Coast Swing UK 10th Year Anniversary! It’s also my 15th Year of being cancer-free thanks to live saving treatment I received via the NHS back in 2000! Miracles do happen but there are still an awful lot of cancer tragedy stories which each and every one of us are affected by at some point or another!

 

It is my goal to be able to raise at least £2000 from this party to donate to the Royal Marsden as a thank you for the miraculous work they do on a daily basis! So please join me in celebrating 10 years of WCSUK, my survival and this fundraising effort! Thank you all so much in advance!
