Lara talks Strictly Northampton

Now when I said October is all about training I didn’t mean just Hairdressing training. I have just started a very exciting and nerve wracking 8-week journey called STRICTLY NORTHAMPTON.

Strictly Northampton is a fundraising event organised by Step By Step dance school. 24 contestants are paired up with a professional dancer from the dance school and they have 8 weeks to learn 3 dances. It’s then head to head on stage at the Derngate Theatre, where the audience can vote for their favourite couple who will be crowned Glitterball champions of 2017.

Strictly Northampton is now in its 7th year and has raised over 1.2 million for different charities. This year it is supporting the amazing local Cynthia Spencer Hospice a cause my husband Daniel and I are excited to be raising money for.

Lara Boot Hairdressing are proud to support, sponsor & take part in this fabulous event.

You may have heard us talk strictly in previous years as for the last 2 years LBH have had the exciting task of styling all of the dancer’s hair. Something we are delighted to be doing again this year alongside being the main sponsor of the event. Last year our very own Bev and David took part, they had a fantastic time and have both assured Daniel and I that we are going to love it.

So for the next 8 weeks our Sunday afternoons are going to be full of the Cha Cha Cha and Quickstep. We are still yet to find out what our third dance will be (I’m hoping for the Charleston; I love the idea of clowning around)

To help with the fundraising I will be wearing fancy dress in the salon on random days and we will hold a raffle, cake sale and other fun things, so keep your eye out for these. If you have any other fundraising ideas let me know, I will give anything a try (well almost anything!)

On a serious note, Cynthia Spencer Hospice provides specialist palliative care to adults with life limiting illnesses, this local Hospice offers such an amazing service to those who are in need and I know it is held close to many people’s hearts. So please please help us to raise money and achieve our target by using the sponsorship form on reception or use my Just Giving page.

Thank you in advance I really appreciate your support
