Dancing with the Dales

Tuesday 21 November 2017

Friends June Burns and Julie Garrity turned the Macron Stadium in to Strictly Ballroom with their Dancing with the Dales fundraiser in support of the Caring for Adults with Leukaemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma (CALLM) fund at the Manchester Royal Infirmary and the young oncology unit at the Christie. 

Hosted by actor Chris Chittell, the evening saw Emmerdale stars Liam Fox, Amy Walsh, Samantha Giles,Micheal Parr, Kathryn Dow-Blyton and Joe Gill taking to the dance floor to perform whilst their co-star Gemma Atkinson joined boxer Scott Quigg,  footballer Jason Jarrett and dancers Chris Coe and Becky Jarvis to judge their dancing skills. After a fabulous evening of entertainment it was Samantha Giles who took the crown of the Dancing with the Dales winner.

June chose to fundraise for CALLM following treatment her husband, Russell, received at Manchester Royal Infirmary, sadly Russell passed away before the event but June raised an amazing £2,665 in his memory.
