This amazing sum was raised at 2 of our much loved annual events:
Dance UK LIVE 2017 , our all singing, all dancing showbiz production with a cast of 400!
and Dance UK’s Streetdance Convention 2017, our amazing event showcasing all our breakdancers in competition and performance with guest judge, Peter Maniam, founder of Random Aspekts Dance Company.
A few weeks ago, teachers and pupils at Dance UK Baillieston hosted this year’s Official Cheque Presentation and the lovely Suzanne came along to accept the cheque on the night on behalf of what is now Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity . All the pupils performed for Suzanne and a packed audience of friends and families too. It was a brilliant evening and everyone had a great time which you can see from the pictures.
The big cheque also went on tour to Dance UK Wishaw so check out if your wee one is in all these great shots taken on the day.
Suzanne, on behalf of the GCHC would like to thank everyone once again for all our efforts and generosity
