Come Dance with us

Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity is asking if you will put your best foot forward in their latest fundraiser ‘Come Dance With Us’– a first for RCHT!

The ‘Strictly Style Event’, promises to transform participants from couch critic to dance floor diva! As participants are guided through 8 weeks of rehearsals all leading to a final event where a judging panel will decide who will be crowned King and Queen of the dance floor!

The Fundraising Team is seeking 20 participants to participate in the event and be a part of what promises to be an amazing experience. Each participant will be asked to raise funds for the charity general fund or specific fund of their choice with £500 of matched funding up for grabs for the top two fundraisers.

Applications are open now not just to Trust staff, but also members of the public keen to support the charity. Applicants do not need to be dancers and it is not necessary to apply with a partner. The team are expecting to be oversubscribed so be sure to get in your application,

“We know that ‘Come Dance with Us’ will be an amazing personal experience for the dancers but also an amazing opportunity to increase awareness of the work of the Trust and of course to raise funds for the charity,”

said Karen Murrish, Fundraising Manager for Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity.

“Guided by Clare our Community Fundraiser and professional dance instructor, the dancers are in for a real once in a lifetime experience, we can’t wait to see them perform at the finale event!”

Added Karen.

After 8 weeks of rehearsals, the grand finale event will be held on the evening of Sunday 5th May in the majestic ballroom of The Atlantic Hotel in Newquay.

“Whether you believe you can dance or not, I can guarantee that by the night, you will be tripping the light fantastic and wanting to do it all again, promise”

reassuring words from Clare Lawrence

The deadline for applications is 6th February with info packs and application forms available from the Fundraising Team call 01872 252858 or email

Tickets will also be on sale for the finale evening, keep your eyes peeled for announcements as it’s sure to be a sell-out event.
