Calling all disco divas and jiving jacks! On Monday 2nd May, The Mayor of Knutsford will be shimmying and whirling non-stop for 12 hours in his final fundraising event of his mayoral year – a Dance-a-thon!
Inspired by the lockdown kitchen discos of Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Cllr Stewart Gardiner will livestream his efforts on The Mayor of Knutsford Facebook page from 10 am until 10pm and has decided to ask for song requests from the Knutsford community in return for a donation, which can be sent via his GoFundMe page.
Residents and businesses are also invited to reserve a space on the dance floor with him for a 20 minute slot for a £20 donation.
When Cllr Gardiner was approached for a quote, he said “I can’t. I’m out of breath. I’m so busy learning my dance moves…. maybe I could quote Bob Geldof without the swearing!”
Visit The Mayor’s Go Fund Me page to donate, and leave a comment there if you’d like to request a song. https://gofund.me/e4c491a4

All the proceeds will be going to the Knutsford branches of The Royal British Legion and The St Vincent De Paul Society.
