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.
