Our glitziest event of the year returned last November as Just Dance for Maggie’s returned for another sensational evening of sequins, glamour and incredible dance moves.
With a spectacular fundraising total of £350,000 raised over the last 6 years, Just Dance for Maggie’s 2018, which is entirely volunteer led, certainly set the bar high for itself.
And this year’s dance extravaganza certainly didn’t disappoint. The competition brought together professional dancers with local business people to perform in front of over 500 people and a tough panel of judges. In keeping with this years movie theme each couple rumba’d, jived and quick-stepped their way through their routines after 3 months of intensive training.
And while the competition was fierce this year, with each couple producing a fantastic showstopper routine, it was professional boxer Craig MacIntyre and professional dance partner Tracy Donald who lifted the glitterball trophy on the night.
This wasn’t the only triumph of the night however, as Just Dance raised a record breaking £104,000 for Maggie’s Glasgow.
Centre Head Kerry Craig said:
We would like to say a huge thank you to the Malcolm Group, Lorraine McInnes, Joan Davis and all the Just Dance team for their fantastic achievements over the years and for setting a new fundraising record in 2018.
The training and fundraising required for all the participating dancers is an intensive process and we are so touched by their commitment to both the centre and the 18,000 people we see annually.
As a charity Maggie’s Glasgow relies on donations and fundraising efforts such as Just Dance, allows us to continue to develop our unique, high quality programme of support, offering the best support possible to people with cancer as well as their family and friends.
