On Saturday 15 February, Absolute Salsa will present a special Valentines charity evening in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care and TreeTops Hospice at Déda.
The event has been organised by Lee Hunter of Absolute Salsa, the East Midlands largest Salsa promoter. He decided to organise the event in celebration of his late mother-in-law Val who passed away only a week before her daughter’s wedding to Lee. Val had been diagnosed with liver cancer only eighteen months previously.
Lee comments ‘I promised my wife Sue that when the dust had settled I’d run a Charity night for the charities that were close to Val’s heart, Treetops Hospice and Macmillan. The event will celebrate Val’s life and all profits will be given to charity. Cancer affects so many of us that we decided to plan a fun-filled night to try to raise as much money for the two charities and promote the support that each charity offers.’
The Absolute Salsa Valentine’s Charity Party will take place on Saturday 15 February from 8pm. Tickets for the evening are £10 and can be booked by visiting www.deda.uk.com or calling the Box Office on 01332 370911. Advanced booking is advised.
