Weston Hospicecare has postponed the 2020 Strictly Fun Dancing Grand Finale which was due to take place this Saturday (21st March).
After careful consultation with the Winter Gardens on Monday morning, the decision was made to delay the event. This follows the increased severity of the international coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The hospice’s priority is to protect the health of the participants, staff, volunteers, and the audience in attendance.
Strictly Fun Dancing is a vital fundraising event for the hospice and the current coronavirus pandemic is set to have a huge impact on income generation.
Despite the crisis, the charity’s nurses and doctors are continuing to deliver expert compassionate care to those with life-limiting conditions.
Event Manager Grace Dibden said: “It’s with regret that we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Strictly Fun Dancing.
“Our incredible dancers have given everything they have got during the past ten weeks to learn the routines and to raise thousands of pounds for the hospice.
“We are working towards announcing a new date in due course and thank all supporters for their cooperation during these unprecedented times.”
Tickets for the Grand Finale will automatically be transferred to the new date which will be announced in due course.
