Local dance teacher raises money for charity as part of her degree

May 9, 2011 by  

A local dance teacher raised over £700 for charity by hosting a dance show as part of her degree course at the University of Central Lancashire.

Keri McNabb had been running a dance class in her hometown of Burscough in Lancashire when she decided to hold the show to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. The show, entitled ‘An Evening of Song and Dance’ was held at Priory Science College where Keri herself studied before taking part in the Dance, Performance and Teaching degree at the University of Central Lancashire.

Keri called upon local businesses to help with the show and received contributions, raffle prizes and even programmes were provided by local brochure printers. Preston, which lies around 12 miles north of the town of Burscough, is home to the main campus for the University of Central Lancashire where Keri studies dance; and the dance show she hosted will contribute towards the work she is doing towards her degree.

Shows like this are frequently hosted in smaller towns and as Keri McNabb has demonstrated, it is often a clever way to raise money for charities. By enlisting the help of local brochure printers near Preston, Keri was able to cut the cost of the production significantly. This might not have been the case had she approached a larger, internet based printing company.

Keri’s father was quoted in The Champion newspaper as saying that his daughter

“Did a brilliant job of putting it all together”.
