Tickets for Strictly Fun Dancing 2019 will go on sale via Weston Hospicecare’s website at 8am next Thursday, 24 January.

The Grand finale will take place on 23 March in the ballroom of Weston-super-Mare’s Winter Gardens.

Last year’s event, which was the first, sold out within a day and demand is expected to be strong once again so fans are advised to be quick if they want to get their hands on tickets.

Those eager to get their hands on tickets will need to visit where tickets will be available to buy for £17.50 per person.

So, get prepared to dress up and join the couples at the Winter Gardens for a glamorous night of entertainment as they take to the dancefloor at the end of 10 weeks of expert training, all in aid of the hospice.

Get behind your favourite couple and see who is crowned as the Strictly Fun Dancing champions of 2019 before dancing the night away yourself at the conclusion of the contest.

Event organiser Kelsey Dehaney says: “This is a fabulous event for everyone in the community to enjoy while supporting Weston Hospicecare.

“We were blown away with how popular it was last year, in our first year organising the event, and we loved how everyone enjoyed themselves on the night. When we returned to the hospice, some of our patients loved looking at the photos and watching the video, which was lovely.

“We raised more than £22,000 in one night of glitz and glamour last year and we cannot wait to do it all again!”

This year the event will be sponsored by Weston restaurant Demetri’s Taverna and the judges will be confirmed soon.

For any further enquiries, contact Kelsey by emailing or by calling 01934 423900.

Every year the hospice has to raise more than £4.2million to support the expert and compassionate care given to those with life-limiting illnesses in Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset. The NHS provides a fifth of the funding meaning £3.3million must be raised through retail, donations, gifts left in wills and fundraising events and opportunities.

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p from the government.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
