Friday 14th October saw 12 local dancers take to the floor in a bid to be crowned Strictly Stafford Champion and take home the glitter ball trophy, all while raising funds for the hospice!

Brought to us by Danny Bell of The Ballroom Company, this was the first Strictly Stafford event. Danny has a wealth of experience after representing internationally in European and World Championships and was able to pass on his expertise to our dancers as they eagerly learned their dance moves to perform on the night.

The evening saw Ben Gamble crowned the first ever Strictly Stafford dancing champion.

Community Fundraiser, Emma Whitehurst said "we are so thrilled at the success of the evening. Both dancers and audience alike had a great time and really got into the Strictly spirit! Thank you to all who took part and to everyone who helped make the event run smoothly. All of the money raised from Strictly Stafford will make a huge difference to our patients and their families."

The event was such a success that there are already plans being made for a Strictly Stafford 2017.

Until then, keeeeeeep dancing!
