WCSUK 13th Year Anniversary Party & Annual Royal Marsden Cancer Charity Fundraiser!

You’re all invited to join Catriona & the WCSUK Team to celebrate our 13th year of WCS dancing in the UK and my 18th year of being cancer free !

14:00-22:00, Sunday 19 August 2018

“In Memory of My Mother Robin Wiles – 1943-2011”

It’s that time of the year again! You’re all invited to join us for a full day of dance and fun to mark the occasion of our West Coast Swing UK 13th Year Anniversary! It’s also my 18th Year of being cancer-free thanks to life saving treatment I received via the NHS back in 2000! Miracles do happen but there are still an awful lot of cancer tragedy stories which each and every one of us are affected by at some point or another! In fact, sadly my mother Robin lost her brief but intense battle with cancer 7 years ago and since that moment, all of my fundraising efforts have been and will be made in her memory!

It is my goal to be able to raise at least £500 from this party to donate to the Royal Marsden as a thank you for the miraculous work they do on a daily basis! Last year we set the same goal but managed to raise a fantastic £1070 which well exceeded my goal! Maybe we’ll be able to do the same again this year, or with your help, possibly even better!

So please join me in celebrating 13 years of WCSUK, my survival, all of your stories with happy endings and this fundraising effort! Thank you all so much in advance!

On the day, you will be able to anonymously nominate names for the following categories;

1 – “Dancers’ Choice” Most Popular Female Dancer
2 – “Dancers’ Choice” Most Popular Male Dancer
3 – “Dancers’ Choice” Favourite Deejay

If you cannot make the party but would like to vote by proxy, you can confidentially send me a FB message, email, text or call with your choices and your votes will be counted! Better still, come along and see your favourite peeps receive their awards!

We will also be awarding “Most Improved Male & Female Dancers” as selected by the WCSUK team!
