Next week our Operations Director, Jennifer Appleton is taking to the dance floor as a contestant in Strictly Worcestershire 3.
She is partnering with Handelsbanken’s Chris Orr, and together the couple will be dancing to raise money for two wonderful charities.
Strictly Worcestershire is a black-tie charity dinner and dance competition featuring local business professionals. Each couple will perform two, two minute ballroom category dances. These will be judged by a special guest panel of judges as well as the audience.
The contest, now in its third year, is sponsored by H1 Healthcare, a recruitment, training and healthcare provider.
Jennifer, who takes part in many local charity initiatives, wanted to show her support for the charities Strictly Worcestershire supports; Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer and the Worcestershire Breast Cancer Unit.
The Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign is a registered charity with the aim of raising £1.8million. This money is to fund the establishment of a new, dedicated Breast Unit at Worcester Royal Hospital for use by women and men across Worcestershire for all breast related issues.
Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer was established in 2000 by Veronica Kumeta and the late Sue Macmaster, after their friend Carol Knaggs was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The charity works alongside the Queen Elizabeth Birmingham.
Around 500 women and 100 men in Worcestershire are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. UK survival rates lag significantly behind most of Europe. Progress is dependent on funding for continued research and new methods, equipment and facilities.
To show your support for these two fantastic charities please visit the ‘Team Sharon’ Just Giving Page to make a donation.
