We frequently hold events to raise money for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), with a grand total of over £1685 now. Check out a few of our favourite events from over the years below. We would love to welcome you to upcoming events, we have lots of exciting fundraisers planned!
We were delighted to be invited to perform in the Courtyard of one of Scotland’s most luxurious shopping centres, Princes Square in Glasgow. We performed a few of our favourite songs and dances on Saturday 6th October in the centre’s beautiful surroundings, filling the 3 floors with our beautiful harmonies! We raised a fantastic £183 for SAMH, adding to our total from over the years to well over £1685 now. Thanks to our amazing members and supporters for helping to raise these funds for a very worthy cause.
Last year, we joined forces with the wonderful Greig Taylor to produce a charity single for SAMH. The aim of the single is to raise awareness of the positive mental health benefits of singing and dancing for those who suffer from mental health illness. Together, they created a unique and uplifting of the classic ‘Dancing in the Dark’ by Bruce Springsteen. The single is now on the playlists for Four Seasons and Park Plazza Hotels all over the world! It is available to purchase on iTunes here, with all proceeds being donated to SAMH.
The annual Summer Solstice event at the Kelpies, Helix Park in Falkirk is an event the whole danceSing team truly look forward to. It’s a time to come together, and celebrate the joys of singing and dancing whilst raising money for a great cause. Our recent 2018 performance was a highlight of the year, and we are already looking forward to performing again next year, it will be bigger and better than ever! Check us out in action below.
Natalie Garry, danceSing Director, said “The annual Summer Solstice event at the Kelpies, Helix Park in Falkirk, is an event that the whole danceSing team truly look forward to. It’s a time to come together and celebrate the joys of singing and dancing whilst raising money for a great cause. It was a fantastic event once again, everyone is buzzing and we are delighted to have raised funds for the vital work that SAMH carry out.”
We raised a fantastic £343.67 on the night – thank you to everyone who donated!
We recently kicked off our Summer term with a free workshop at our Newton Mearns class at Parklands Hotel & Country Club. The afternoon welcomed both members and non-members of danceSing for an enjoyable session of singing and dancing, with all donations going to SAMH. We raised a total of £134!
We have more fun events planned for the remainder of the year, including a performance at Princes Square on 6th October in aid of SAMH. You can view our full calendar of events planned so far here.
There is still plenty of time to sign up to get involved. We would love to welcome you to join us, whether or not you have tried danceSing before!
