Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special for East Belfast Mission

Event Date: 
2 October 2019
Description - please include timings of event or note if all day.: 
Quit being a sofa critic and strut your stuff on the strictly stage for this sparkling Christmas Special show! East Belfast Mission needs 20 brave volunteers to take part in our Strictly Come Dancing fundraiser with Strictly Fundraising Events by Ballroom Blitz NI Productions to raise vital funds for our Meals on Wheels Service. Every week our Meals on Wheels service provides regular hot meals to over 250 housebound elderly, sick and housebound clients in the local East Belfast area who would otherwise be without a substantial daily meal. Unfortunately, many of those housebound individuals who receive the meals on wheels service lack daily contact with friends or family. Our friendly staff and volunteers not only deliver a hot, nutritious meal but provide a friendly face and kind words to individuals which can help alleviate some of the stresses of everyday life as well as the feelings of loneliness and isolation. This service has grown dramatically in recent years and has experienced demand from agencies involved in the care of the elderly and the disabled. It is a lifeline to the many elderly people who live on their own. We now need to raise the funds to buy a new Meals on Wheels catering van to meet these demand- all of the funds raised by this Strictly event will help us towards getting our new Meals on Wheels van and ensuring we can provide this vital service to those who need it! Sign up on your own or with a partner- no dancing experience needed!
