On Friday 15th March, fourteen couples will go head to head for charity, as St. Vincent’s Hospice presents their annual Strictly Come Prancing event at the five star Ingliston Country Club and Hotel.
Now in its eighth year, the hugely popular event, based on the Strictly Come Dancing television series, sees duos with little or no dancing experience take to the floor in an attempt to impress the judges and live audience, each vying to be crowned the 2019 champions.
Senior Fundraiser for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Louise Strachan, commented on the event, saying: “Strictly Come Prancing is a great, fun filled, evening which is one of the most popular in our fundraising calendar. Since early January, our twinkle toed couples have been giving up time every week to train in preparation for the evening and we are so grateful to them for all their efforts.
“Our couples are in the hands of Curtis Campbell and Rebecca Elliot, our star choreographers who are putting everyone through their paces for the night and we cannot thank them enough for their outstanding contribution.
The evening will be hosted by our very own ‘Brucie’ and ‘Tess’ and will feature performances from our 2018 dance couples, last year’s winners as well as our professional dancers.”
All funds raised from the event go directly towards supporting St. Vincent’s Hospice, a specialist provider of palliative and end of life care for individuals and families affected by life limiting conditions.
