    “Doing Strictly last year is something I was so excited for, I have always loved to dance and it’s exactly like being on the real show! One of the best things about it is raising money for an amazing cause that is very deserving of the donations and support, the work the hospice do is amazing. Yasmin and I have a lovely bond since doing Strictly, we lived in each other’s back pocket for the 12 weeks it’s something so unique to do together.

    It was also really special to see how much support we received from family, friends and colleagues, those that attended the night enjoyed it from start to finish and it’s very special to have people so close to you all in one room for a fantastic occasion to support both us and the hospice. The actual night itself was incredible, regardless of whether you win or lose, you look around and everyone is smiling, laughing and enjoying the night. I found St Cuthbert’s Strictly magical from start to finish, a very wholesome experience for a cause that is so deserving of every penny it receives. Anyone thinking about doing it, just sign up!”

    “Our Strictly experience was so much fun. The second time for me but it was Michael’s first and I think he loved it just as much as me! It’s such a great experience, learning to dance, meeting the other contestants and supporting each other along the way, it’s a very special thing. As for the evening itself, although it is a little nerve wracking it is such a fabulous evening having all your friends and family support you and know that you are making a difference to such a wonderful charity! We would definitely recommend it to anyone who is thinking about it! We’d love to do it yet again maybe next year!!”
