Two stars of Strictly Come Dancing are coming to Dewsbury to feature in an NHS fundraising ball.

Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite will be hotfooting it down to Dewsbury Town Hall to make a special appearance at the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust Summer Ball.

The ball, which will be hosted by award-winning performer Billy Pearce, is part of a series of fundraising efforts by staff at Dewsbury and District Hospital to raise money for the Neuro Rehab ward.

Kathryn Fishwick, a consultant from the hospital said: “Money raised from all our events is being used to fund everything from physio equipment to music therapy sessions, all of which help patients on the Neuro Rehab ward who are recovering from a stroke, traumatic injury or viral illness to get back to being who they once were.

“I’m delighted that Natalie and Ian will be making an appearance at our ball.

“I’m sure they will put us all to shame on the dance floor - but I hope that they may be able to teach us a few moves!”

The ball will take place Friday July 1, 6.45pm-12.30am at the town hall.

The dress code is black tie and summer glitz.

Tickets are £50 and available from strictlysummerball@gmail.com or 07837 545642.
