Ballroom fundraisers hand over charity cheque

Last week, Partner, Claire Herbert and Legal Director, Fiona Debney joined other fundraisers from the Leicester Ballroom Glitz to hand over a cheque to LOROS Hospice and Hope Against Cancer.

The Leicester Ballroom Glitz was organised by Claire and Fiona in the midst of the pandemic and saw business professionals from across the East Midlands take to the dance floor for charity.

The event gave those taking part an opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and try something completely different. Dancing either the waltz or jive in front of nearly 500 people is no small feat.

£63,500 was raised from the charity ballroom competition held in July. The money donated will help support those living with cancer and terminally-ill people across the East Midlands.

Georgina Sanders, Supporter Engagement Team Coordinator, said: “We're absolutely delighted to have been chosen to benefit from this wonderful event, and would like to thank everyone involved. From everyone at LOROS, please do keep dancing!”

Nigel Rose, CEO of Hope Against Cancer, commented: “We never cease to be amazed by the imagination and effort that people are willing to bring to fundraising for charities like ourselves. The work we have done for the past 20 years is life-changing and life-saving, but we rely on people organising and participating in events like this to generate the funding that we need. So, massive thanks to Gateley and the sponsors.”
