Two legendary Strictly Come Dancing stars are set to dazzle the crowds at a fundraiser to support vulnerable young people across Coventry and Warwickshire.
The nation’s favourite ballroom couple, Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag, will take to the floor at ‘Strictly Anton and Erin’ at the Double Tree by Hilton, in Walsgrave, Coventry, on May 10.
The event is being held in aid of the NSPCC by the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Board to raise funds to support the running of the Boole House, the NSPCC’s service centre in Coventry.
The inaugural Strictly event, which is sponsored by UK Flooring Direct & Dovetail, is expected to attract more than 240 guests, with tickets including a three course dinner and entertainment.
Les Ratcliffe, Chair of the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Board, said:
We are extremely excited to welcome Anton and Erin to Coventry for this very special fundraiser.
It will be an action-packed evening with masses of entertainment but also a very serious side which will underline the work of the NSPCC both nationally and in our particular area.
Boole House does superb work in helping vulnerable children and we are proud to help it fulfil its vital role. I’d like to thank all of the sponsors who have signed up for this year and I hope they all enjoy the event.
Meet and greet packages are also available, giving ballroom fans the opportunity to meet the dancing duo face-to-face.
The Business Board is one of the most successful in the country, and in the last 21 years has raised in excess of £2.8 million to protect vulnerable children in the local area.
The Strictly event is expected to raise around £20,000, bringing the Business Board’s anticipated fundraising total for 2018 to more than £150,000 – ever closer to the £3m mark.
Hamilton Bland, Chair of events committee of the Coventry and Warwickshire Business Board, added:
We have had some excellent support over the years from the local business community in Coventry and Warwickshire, and this looks set to continue for our latest event.
We look forward to welcoming everyone to Strictly Anton and Erin, and all those who attend will be helping a very worthy cause.
