An evening of dancing held in Plymouth at The Life Centre on Saturday 6 August 2016 raised a grand total of £750 for the South West Mesothelioma Support Group, whilst at the same time raising awareness of asbestos related cancer. The event was organised by mesothelioma patient Wally Wright.

Thanks go to asbestos specialist solicitors Novum Law for their sponsorship, plus all those who attended or helped with the raffle.

The next dance in aid of the charity will be held on 19 August from 20:00–23:30 at Woolwell Community Centre Plymouth. Tickets cost £7.00 and can be purchased on the door.

Come and enjoy an evening of Ballroom and Sequence dances. Drinks only from the bar. Biscuits provided as refreshments but you can bring your own nibbles!

The South West Mesothelioma Support Group holds monthly meetings for those diagnosed or affected by mesothelioma plus other asbestos related conditions. New members are welcome.

For further information about the dances or the support group please contact Wally on 01752 601750.
