Peace Hospice Care launches Strictly Come Hospice 2018

This New Year, dust off your dancing shoes and join Peace Hospice Care for their very own Strictly ballroom dancing competition – starts January 2018!

Registration is now open for Peace Hospice Care’s annual dancing competition, Strictly Come Hospice. The Cha-Cha-Cha and Ballroom Tango have been selected as the showcase dances this year for the fundraising competition. They are looking for 20 couples (or 40 singles) to join the annual 2018 Strictly Come Hospice competition and the chance to be crowned the Strictly Come Hospice Champions.

Participants will take part in seven weeks of dancing lessons, at the YMCA in Watford, with professional dancers from Paul Alex Dance Studios. They will then have the opportunity to perform their routine in front of a panel of expert judges, and an audience of 500, at the Strictly Come Hospice Grand Finale at the Watersmeet Theatre, Rickmansworth on Friday 16th March 2018.

Lisa Rowland, Events Manager at Peace Hospice Care, said: “Get the glitter out and dust off your dancing shoes! If you love Strictly then this is a great fundraiser for you. You don’t have to be a professional dancer, just someone who is willing to try something new and wants to support their local charity. Strictly Come Hospice has been a huge success for us over a number of years – it’s an event that helps us raise funds for our free services and engage with our supporters in a fun and entertaining way.”

Places are limited – couples and individuals can register. If you register as an individual then the Hospice will pair you up with others who have also registered individually. Anyone interested in taking part can sign up by visiting Peace Hospice Care Events page, emailing events@peacehospicecare.org.uk or ringing 01923 335373.

Strictly Come Hospice is just one of Peace Hospice Care’s 2018 fundraisers. Money raised by the community enables the charity to provide free specialist services to patients, and their families, facing a life-limiting illness, across South West Hertfordshire and the wider area.
