Strictly Worcestershire is returning to the Chateau Impney in Droitwich Spa on Thursday, May 24 2018. Keep checking this page and visiting our Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter pages for the latest news.

25/5/2018 This year's event raised a fab-u-lous £32,000 for St Richard's Hospice and Rory the Robot Appeal. Thanks to everyone for their support and Worcestershire Ambassadors for their donation. Congratulations to our 2018 champions Gareth and Dawn, who beat Tim and Amanda in the dance off. Tied in third place were Jackie and Jim and Abi and Mark.

15/5/2018 The show will go on for brave contestant Dawn Owen, who will take part despite breaking her arm in training. Dawn tripped and fell in rehearsals with partner Gareth Keyte but are determined to perform their two dances, a rumba and ballroom routine.

"I got my right foot caught in the strap of my left shoe and flew four feet across the floor - it was quite spectacular," said Dawn.

"Ironically it was one of the rare moments when Gareth and I were at opposite ends of the floor otherwise he'd have caught me.

"We've worked extremely hard over the past eight months and the last thing we want to do is let down all the people who have bought tickets and the two charities. Our dance teacher Sharon Tilki is helping us to amend our routines and I'll be blinging up my cast," Dawn added.     

Event co-producer Julia Williams said: "Everyone involved with the show is not surprised that Dawn has taken the famous song lyric 'Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again' to heart. I'm sure she'll smile through the pain and do her utmost to put on a memorable performance."

6/9/2017 County cancer charity the Rory the Robot Appeal has been handed a £20,000 boost by the organisers of Strictly Worcestershire 4.

Rory is a state-of-the-art surgical robotic system, which allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery. With Rory’s assistance, patients will benefit from less pain, minimal blood loss, quicker recovery and reduced complications.

Ian Jukes, chairman of the Rory the Robot Appeal, said: “The amount raised shows how events like Strictly Worcestershire can make a big difference in supporting the funding of our new robotic surgical unit for the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch. I’m also aware of its positive impact on raising awareness of prostate cancer in our community and would like to thank all those involved.”

Sponsored by drp and A1 Recruitment Solutions, the 2017 event also raised funds for the Worcestershire Prostate Cancer Awareness Group.

Strictly Worcestershire co-producer Granville Orange said: “Through the efforts of our dancers from the business community, sponsors, audience members and volunteers who fund-raised on the night, we’ve been able to help two charities based in the county."

Granville also presented a cheque for £10,000 to SW4 charity Worcestershire Prostate Cancer Awareness Group, who undertake regular blood testing around the county. The charity was founded and is run by David Baxter-Smith and his wife Dorothy. Its patron is Lord Faulkner of Worcester.

All proceeds to Worcestershire Breast Unit Campaign and Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer. Partners - Nexus Creative, Project, AGCountryHomes, Chris Green MEdia, Intasound PA.
