Charity Danceathon – £5,000 Raised for SNAP!

Charity Danceathon – £5,000 Raised for SNAP!
This weekend saw the biggest charity event so far this year commence at Pinney Talfourd – a 24-hour Danceathon in support of SNAP!

At 12 noon on Saturday 21st October, three of our Family Solicitors – Catherine Loadman, Sue Nash and Lucy Birch – limbered up for the last time before embarking on their mammoth 24-hour challenge, all in support of our Charity of the Year, SNAP (Special Needs and Parents).

A whole host of colleagues, contacts, family members and friends joined forces to spur them on for the first few hours of the dancing challenge, with songs chosen by them and the wider public as part of Pinney’s Playlist Picks.

The Danceathon spilled out onto the streets of Upminster, with many members of the public coming over to donate and pass on words of encouragement to our three dancing divas; some of them even got in on the action and joined in for a boogie!

As the day turned into night and the streets started to empty, the ladies continued their immense task in the boardroom.

At 5am, they brought themselves back downstairs into our main reception to greet the morning crowd with some fantastic singalong songs (and the dance moves to match!) All throughout this time, their efforts were being live-streamed onto our Facebook page, with hundreds of people sending their good wishes and support, as well as donating to this fantastic cause.

Charity Danceathon in Support of SNAP

Danceathon-Teaser-1
Pinney Talfourd Solicitors will soon be embarking on a truly unique fundraising event for our Charity of the Year, SNAP (Special Needs and Parents) – a 24-hour Danceathon!

From 12 noon on Saturday 21st October, three of our solicitors - Catherine Loadman, Sue Nash and Lucy Birch – will be dancing non-stop for 24 hours in our Upminster office, each bopping away without any sleeping breaks until 12 noon on Sunday 22nd October.

Other members of staff, friends and family have also pledged to join the threesome for a boogie throughout the days and night, keeping their spirits up during the periods when they no doubt will be aching for a coffee and a power nap!

It made perfect sense for Pinney Talfourd to raise money for SNAP in a ‘different’ way – ever since the charity’s inception in 1994, they have been working hard to create a welcoming and diverse environment with unrivalled support for parents with special-needs children.

The entire 24-hour event will be live-streamed on our Facebook page, giving everybody the opportunity to cheer the ladies on in their endeavours. For those who want to get involved further, we are running a JustGiving fundraising page – people can donate £5 and choose a song to be played during the allocated ‘Pinney Playlist Picks’ hours throughout the event! If you’d like to choose a song for our tireless threesome to tap their toes to, visit our JustGiving page.

The event will commence at 12 noon on Saturday 21st October and will finish a full 24 hours later at 12 noon on Sunday 22nd October.

We caught up with the ladies during their normal busy work schedules to see how their training for the Danceathon was progressing.

 

How have you been preparing for the 24-hour dancing stint?

Catherine: I have been trying to frequent the gym more often whilst undertaking some more ‘fun’ activities, such as Zumba classes with Jess from Fitjess Fitness!

Lucy: Just the one Zumba class so far; I need to get my act into gear!
