Irish Dance Academy shows support for charities

The McWilliams Academy of Dance has shown support for two charity drives that remain very close to their hearts.

They have recently donated a collection of blankets, clothing and non-perishable foods to the Round Table Winter Knights Campaign, and a collection of different types of sports shoes to the Brian Bands Retired running shoes campaign.

“It is truly inspiring to see a group of young ladies thinking of those less fortunate than themselves and on behalf of Round Table 108 and Algoa Toyota, I’d like to thank them for their continued acts of goodwill,” said Simon Ward, Vice-Chairman of the Round Table.

“It is very important for us to be giving back to the community who support us so generously with our own efforts to raise funds for our studio and it also enables the girls to grow up with a community conscience,” said Jennifer McWilliams, owner of McWilliams Academy of Dance.

The studio also recently helped to raise funds for St Francis Hospice, by performing at Last Night of the Proms.
