Nantwich Dancers raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research

The Nantwich Saturday Night Sequence Dancers have raised £1,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

The money was presented by the group to Liz and Mike Boffey, from the South Cheshire branch of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

The dancers, who meet at Malbank School in Nantwich on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, are raising for two charities this year, with North West Air Ambulance the other beneficiary.

Liz Boffey, from South Cheshire branch of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, said: “We are indebted to the Nantwich Saturday Night Sequence Dancers for their generous donation.

“Mike and I were delighted to meet them and hear of the good work they do while having fun and keeping fit.

“The money raised goes directly into research of all leukaemia types and lymphoma – we wish the Sequence Dancers more future success.”

The dance group has around 90 people attending each session, with the oldest member aged 103!

They started in February 2007 and initially met at the Nantwich Methodist Church in Hospital Street, before moving to Malbank School in 2008.

Five founder members give their time for free and charity funds are raised through a £1.50 fee per person per session as well as proceeds from a raffle with prizes donated by the participants.

The group have raised more than £14,000 since they formed and chose Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research this year after the daughter of one of their members died from leukaemia.

Founder members Caryl and Margaret said: “We are all agreed our dances are regularly attended by a lovely group of people – it makes it feel like one big happy family.”
