Accrington based business William Dyer Electrical has chosen to support DanceSyndrome after seeing members of their team at a prestigious Awards ceremony.
Managing Director William Dyer was at a special presentation ceremony at County Hall on 22nd July where the Lancashire recipients of the 2019 Queens Award for Voluntary Services were receiving their awards from The Lord-Lieutenant of Lancashire. William was there as part of his work supporting Community Defibrillators for Rossendale (CDFR). He was so impressed by a speech given by DanceSyndrome Founder Jen Blackwell that he took the decision to reach out to offer his support. The timing was perfect as we are currently looking for sponsors to help us to continue their all of our activities across Lancashire.
DanceSyndrome is multi-award winning dance charity. We deliver inclusive dance workshops and dance leadership training as well as inspiring performances that demonstrate a focus on ability rather than disability. Dancers with and without disabilities work together to inspire people to see what can be achieved when we all become more inclusive. The charity was founded by Jen Blackwell, who happens to have Down’s syndrome, because she found it difficult to find opportunities in community dance due to her disability. We firmly believe that disability should never be a barrier to following your dreams and we empower people with and without disabilities to pursue a career in dance.
The sponsorship that William Dyer Electrical have provided will enable us to maintain our weekly Accrington Library workshop for the next year, following the end of major funding which has sustained the session for the last three years.
William Dyer, Managing Director, said “William Dyer Electrical UK Ltd recognise the exceptional work Dancesyndrome do for our community and are extremely pleased to be able to offer some support and funding to assist the team to continue the fabulous work.”
DanceSyndrome Managing Director Dawn Vickers said “We are always thrilled when a local business decides to support our work. Donations like this make a significant difference to our work and enable us to continue to support people who are often excluded from mainstream activities to not only be included but to be empowered to become leaders. By supporting small charities like ours businesses make a really impactful contribution to the local community.”
