Friday 17th May 7pm to 9pm Dance for Derian House and Remember Ross £5 at Academy @ Worden (Worden High School), Westfield Drive, Leyland PR25 1QX
As many of you know it’s my 50th birthday very soon (the 18th of May) and I wanted to invite everyone to a party and I then I thought wouldn’t it be great if the party raised some money for two local charities. Our night is called “Dance for Derian House and Remember Ross”
I know most people will be familiar with Derian House- the children’s hospice and it’s amazing work with children and their families www.derianhouse.co.uk/ but you may not know about Ross. Ross Tomlinson was a young man who played in my son Yianni Hadjigeorgiou’s football team. I stood with Ross’s parents every Sunday watching our boys grow up and become young men. Very sadly last year at the age of 21 Ross died from a rare kind of cancer called Medullablastoma. Ross had started raising money for the Christie Young Oncology Unit in Manchester and now in his memory the Ross Tomlinson Tribute Fund continues to do so. www.rosstomlinsontributefund.org For every £5 you donate for the evening half will go to Derian House and half to the Ross Tomlinson Tribute Fund.
I have a great guest instructor for the first half called Mark Gill coming over from Blackburn. He is great, great fun. There are other guest instructors joining us for second half including a belly dance instructor.
Look forward to seeing everyone!
