An award-winning charity supporting 36,000 people with access to free dance, health and wellbeing programmes is looking forward to a brighter future after winning £1,000 of DIY and decorating materials.

DanceWest, in Harrow, London, scooped the prize through Leyland SDM’s Give London a Lift campaign.

DanceWest is planning to refresh its dance studios with the materials. The group’s programmes are delivered across West London boroughs including Brent, Hammersmith and Fulham, Hounslow, Richmond, Kensington and Chelsea, Kingston and Westminster.

Rosie Whitney-Fish, DanceWest founder, said: “This prize is a tremendous boost. We’re really thrilled to receive this support. Our mission is to engage people of all ages and abilities in high-quality dance activity, which has been proven to improve mental and physical wellbeing.

“We believe that dance enriches lives and is the catalyst for positive change in our community. Our facilities need constant maintenance. These materials from Leyland SDM will allow us to carry out work and make our home even more inviting for the many thousands of people who use them.”

Jonathan Jennings, CEO at Leyland SDM, said: “We’re pleased to be able to support DanceWest and the work it does in West London. Dance is a great way for people to come together and stay active.
