Twenty-two people from the plumbing and heating industry are set to samba, foxtrot and cha cha cha their way to raising money for the Energy for Children charity with a Strictly Come Dancing competition.
Organised by NINGA (NI Natural Gas Association), the big night is set to take place on Friday, April 27 at the La Mon Hotel and Country Club.
The 11 dance couples are all amateurs and will represent different aspects of the plumbing and heating industry, including contractors, merchants, manufacturers and training centres. They have already started a tough training regime to be ready for the big night, which will include all the glitter, glam and spray tans that you would expect.
Ken Kinkead, one of the NINGA Committee Members organising the event, commented, “We have people from every aspect of the industry taking part and while it isn’t going to be easy to learn all the dances and then perform them on the night, credit must go to them all for giving up their time to help raise money for the Energy for Children charity.”
A number of sponsors have already been lined up to support the event. All the money raised will be in aid of the Energy for Children charity that makes a difference to disadvantaged children’s lives across Northern Ireland.
The charity focuses on those needy causes that are slipping through the net of the more established charity network, and is founded on the principle that ‘all monies raised go directly to local children and young people’.
