Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
St Rocco’s holds a very special place in my heart after seeing first-hand how they cared for my Dad when he stayed there 11 years ago in his final weeks. We were so very impressed and ever go grateful, and since then I have always tried to help in fund raising for the hospice, so that that they can support other families in the same way.
So when I was asked to enter Strictly St Rocco's and said yes without thinking. It was only after a few weeks that I realised I had signed up to dance in front of hundreds of people at a very glittering, glamorous evening on 9th December 2018, that's when the nerves kicked in!
Strictly St Rocco's is a great charity evening of 10 novice dancers doing their moves with 10 professional dancers. Lots of sparkle, great outfits and spray tans!
My only previous experience of dancing (very loose term of it really) would be after several drinks on a Friday or Saturday night on the dance floors of Fiesta, Mr Smiths, Secrets, Mississippi Showboat, Evergreens Brannigans, Chaplins & Chigago Rock (all to the classics of the 80s and 90s!) but I have certainly never done anything like this at all. But I really do like a challenge, and despite being way outside my comfort zone I shall give it my best shot and have as much fun as possible and enjoy the experience, and of course always remembering that it’s for such a fantastic cause.
Can I please ask you to consider sponsoring me? It doesn't matter what the amount is, every penny donated is a penny the hospice doesn't have.
