Dancers square off against cancer

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

THE SWAN Val­ley Squares have cel­e­brated their fourth birth­day in style at the Wood­lake Com­mu­nity Hall.

The event was themed to co­in­cide with St Pa­trick’s Day and all dancers and food matched the theme “all things green”.

Over 50 dancers took to the floor and square danced the night away.

Greg Fawell from the Swan Val­ley Squares said the night was a suc­cess and even raised $200 for cancer re­search.

“The club typ­i­cally do­nates the pro­ceeds of its raf­fle at ma­jor events to char­i­ta­ble causes and this year was no dif­fer­ent, with ap­prox­i­mately $200 be­ing raised, which will be do­nated to The Cancer Coun­cil at the re­quest of one of the club mem­bers who has re­cently had a bat­tle with cancer,” he said.

“Danc­ing of­fers many so­cial and health ben­e­fits, meet­ing new friends and par­tic­i­pat­ing with a won­der­ful so­cial group hav­ing lots of fun and laugh­ter to­gether.

“The club now en­ters its fifth year with en­thu­si­asm, hav­ing grown from a small nu­cleus to a mem­ber­ship now num­ber­ing 40 ac­tive and so­cial mem­bers.”
