One of our new colleagues that has joined the practice, Jenna Atkinson, has been training for Strictly, but not as you know it. This is Strictly Learn to Dance. All in aid of Bolton Hospice with her dance partner and father, Neil.
With her self-confessed “two left feet”, Jenna has decided that over the first twelve weeks of 2019 she would learn to dance before the grand finale in front of a live audience, all the while trying to raise upwards of £2000 for Bolton Hospice, a charity she holds dear to her heart after losing family members to cancer.
Bolton Hospice is not just a building, it is a way of caring for people. Their care aims to improve the lives of people whose illness may not be curable. The hospice’s team help people to live as actively as possible after diagnosis to the end of their lives, however long that might be.
The consultant-led team of doctors, nurses and other professional staff provide expert care and support for local people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families, in the hospice and at home. The hospice not only take care of patients’ physical needs, they consider their emotional, spiritual and social needs too. Bolton Hospice, like others, also support families and close friends, both during illness and in bereavement.
The grand finale of the competition is being held at the University of Bolton Stadium (Bolton Wanderers Football Club) on the 30th March.
