Our Fundraiser of the month for March is Beth Burrus & Newcastle University Irish Dance Society. Together they raised £986.80 through ticket sales for their ‘Treble on the Tyne’ dance event, a charity raffle and various performances around St Patricks Day weekend.
The amount raised is being match funded by Santander Bank- raising the total to £1,976.60!
Beth said following the event:
“We chose to support NECCR because it is a cause close to a lot of our hearts and we all know someone who has been affected by cancer. Also, we were keen to support a local charity that does such amazing work within research!”
We are also delighted to announce that the Newcastle University Irish Dance Society will be joining us at this year’s Children’s Cancer Run in Newcastle on May 19th and will be performing for us in the event village.
