Following the success of The Park Club’s hugely popular Charity White Collar Boxing Event back in March 2014 where over £20,000 was raised for the locally founded RUSSELL DAWKINS BACK ON TRACK CHARITY, the Club is now swapping sweaty boxing shorts for sequins and glamour. Get ready for West London’s STRICTLY CHARITY 2014 !

After some preliminary dance-offs between Hogarth and Park Club members back in July and September this year, 5 male and 5 female contestants have now been selected to compete in the main "Strictly Charity Grand Final” on 6 December 2014.

The contestants are all paired off with professional dancers and have started rehearsals for the Big Night in the Park Club giant dome, a ticketed event open to members and non-members.
The local dancers come from varying backgrounds (lawyers, doctors, gym managers to name but a few!). We’ll be following their progress in learning new shapes and moves including the Pasodoble, Charelston, Waltz, Cha Cha and more, as well as gleaning insight into the physical and mental fun (aka torture) of their experience, before they perform in front of 1500 attendees in December!

The event will have celebrity panel of judges and compere, exquesite costumes, make-up, glitter balls and a whole load of local fun which will raise thousands to for people with spinal injuries like Russ Dawkins www.russelldawkinsbackontrack.co.uk.

There are lots of ways to get involved (see below).
