Dance-A-Thon Success!

Last Sunday (10th November), Sunshine & Smiler and one of our 21 Co. baristas, Francis Henry danced the day away as he completed his 10-hour dance-a-thon for his Sunshine 10X Challenge!

It was a fantastic day at the DPTA Stage Door Studios in Guiseley, and Francis was joined by several other Sunshine & Smilers, including his friend George Webster!

So far, Francis has raised an amazing £1,390 and we’d like to give him a BIG thank you!

We got some great coverage of the event on our local BBC and ITV news bulletins - you can watch the segment on ITV Calendar here: https://www.itv.com/news/calendar/2023-11-19/dancer-with-downs-syndrome-busts-a-move-for-10-hours-in-a-thank-you-to-charity

The Sunshine 10X Challenge finishes this coming Sunday (26th November), and you can still sponsor Francis here: https://localgiving.org/fundraising/francis10xdance/
