Vintage-style event raises charity funds

Swing stepping CancerCare clients strutted their stuff at a Strictly Come Dancing-style charity ball.


The CancerCare dancers paired up with experienced lindy hop dancers and put on an amazing show at Lancaster Town Hall on Friday, December 14.


Organised by Lancaster Lindy Circle and Bay Balboa, the Strictly Swing Winter Ball had a vintage twist and raised funds to help people affected by cancer across North Lancashire and South Cumbria.


Karen Hine, Margaret Parker, Lynda Young and Linda Taylor from CancerCare learned swing dance and partnered up with experienced dancers to compete in the Strictly Come Dancing-style competition mid-way through the evening.

Anna Webster, Fundraising Team Coordinator from CancerCare, said: “It was a phenomenal evening at the Strictly Swing Winter Ball.


“I was speechless for the first time in a long time and so proud of the CancerCare dancers.”


Martyn Nelson and the Rhythm Remedies performed classic jazz standards and swing DJs played vintage music from the 1920s to the 1940s.



The final total raised through the ball is yet to be calculated and will be announced in due course.
