For the last few months our Business Development Manager Jill Keenan and her partner Mark have been training hard for Strictly Come Prancing in aid of St Vincent’s Hospice. The event took place on Friday 15th March and raised a fantastic £56,000, and the total is still rising!
Strictly Come Prancing took place at the stunning Ingliston Country Club in Bishopton, welcoming 460 guests and saw 13 couples compete to take home the title of Strictly Come Prancing 2019 winners. Although Jill and Mark didn’t take the top spot, won by Alex Glass & Lynn Ferguson, they are still on a high from the night and have loved the opportunity to get involved in something a little bit different whilst raising an amazing amount of cash for the Hospice. The couple performed an energetic jive routine to the Elvis hit ‘Jailhouse Rock’, impressing the crowd and the judges!
Jill and Mark have worked closely with St Vincent’s Hospice in the past and therefore have a great understanding of how important the charity is to individuals and families in the local community. The charity helps to provide access to the best possible care and support to everyone living with a life-limiting illness.
Well done to everyone involved and of course Alex and Lynn, the winners who performed an Argentine Tango. You have all earned a well-deserved rest! Check out some photos from the night below.
