12-hour Dance-a-thon for Vickie.
Updated: Oct 8, 2021
Our incredible Liberate Dance founder Vickie needs your help!
You may have noticed that Vickie has not been around for a number of months. Unfortunately, this is due to her health declining.
Vickie’s life has been turned upside down since October 2020 when she developed sepsis and went into septic shock. Consequently, she’s now living with two extremely rare and life-threatening illnesses with no cure, requiring experimental and off licence treatments which are not funded by the NHS. So far, Vickie's family have spent over £10,000 on all of her medical treatment. Due to the complexity of her situation, and the need for ongoing private medical treatment, the costs are only going to continue to increase and the family are now fundraising to help support Vickie’s recovery and the long journey she is now on.
“Vickie is the loveliest, kindest person and it's deeply unfair all the health issues that she's had to face. Please help her on her road to recovery by donating whatever you can!”
As her dance company, Liberate Dance wanted to help support her fundraising. So on Saturday 21st August, Liberate Dance will be hosting a sponsored 12-hour Dance-a-thon to fundraise for Vickie. This is an open event that will be held over Zoom from 9am - 9pm. You can sponsor us via our Just Giving page:
