Glenn Rogers very kindly gave us an evening to raise money for MS. People came in droves to this event and he was magnificent. We danced, we laughed and we raised money – what a great event. Our final total is £7,231.58; this was raised through the generosity of our dancers and Glenn. A million thanks from us all at 1st Steps.

April 2010
We held a sponsored Linedance to raise money for MS and as you can see from the pictures below, it was extremely well attended, we had fun AND raised a considerable amount of money for MS. Then in October 2010, Glenn Rogers very kindly gave us an evening to raise money for the same cause. People came in droves to this event and he was magnificent. We danced, we laughed and we raised money - what a great event.

2005
Charity Linedance for Cancer Research.
Over 100 dancers and non-dancers attended our afternoon and evening of non stop linedance sessions to raise over £700 for Cancer Research. This total does not include the money people have raised for the sponsored non stop linedance - what wonderful, generous people they all are! We have now raised £10,000.00!

Our first major fundraising event was for Macmillan Nurses, and with a non-stop Linedance evening, we raised a staggering £2,000.00, which made all the hard work worthwhile. Everyone was thrilled at the amount.

2004
The Osteoporosis Society came along to one of our class nights and screened people, to promote awareness and prevention.

Christmas 2003
1st Steps Linedance raised approximately £50 for the Breast Cancer Campaign by selling charity Christmas cards. We have also sold badges for them, which brought in £200.00.
