10.  West Coast Swing UK 12th Year Anniversary Party with Live Music & Annual Royal Marsden Cancer Charity Fundraiser with Catriona & West Coast Swing UK Team, Windsor, Saturday 19 August!

 

WOW! It’s that time of the year again! 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 12th Year Anniversary! It’s also my 17th 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 £500 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 11 years of WCSUK, my survival and this fundraising effort! Thank you all so much in advance!

 

On or before the day, you will be able to anonymously nominate names for the following categories;

 

1 - “Dancers’ Choice” Most Popular Female Dancer

2 - “Dancers’ Choice” Most Popular Male Dancer

3 - “Dancers’ Choice” Favourite Deejay

 

If you cannot make the party but would like to vote by proxy, you can confidentially send me a FB message, email, text or call with your choices and your votes will be counted! Better still, come along and see your favourite peeps receive their awards!

 

We will also be awarding "Most Improved Male & Female Dancers" as selected by the WCSUK team!

 

13:00-23:30, Saturday 19 August 2017
