June 1st 2019 saw the first ever Spin City Charity Summer Ball and it was INCREDIBLE! We raised over £2900 for our chosen charities – MIND, Berkshire Women’s Aid, and Newbury Cancer Care – and had an absolutely amazing time doing it. We were treated to performances from our extended Spin City family, including Claire Andrews (pictured with our fearless leader), Rachel Mayes, Kassia Portas and Roxy Storm as well as our very own Catharine Fewtrell.
As often as we can we try to arrange some fundraising and over the last couple of years have run training sessions and jams to support our local homeless population as well as a studio scratch night which raised over £340 for Newbury Soup Kitchen/HAVEN (a donation which was doubled by donating via The Good Exchange).
Planning for this year’s Charity Ball was well underway when the pandemic changed our lives, but it didn’t affect the kind and giving spirit of our student community. We’ve continued to raise funds both to help keep the studio afloat and donate to our chosen charities.
We can’t wait to put on our glad rags and dance the night away with you all again. Keep an eye on our Facebook group for our next fund-raising adventure!
