Thank you Nick for helping to sell a table at our NBS Dancing for a Cause event!
As Nelson’s MP for 29 years I continue to meet people from all walks of life, all on their own journeys and with stories to tell.  I like to be able to help and make a difference which is the main reason why I am taking part in Dancing for a Cause.    Dancing for a Cause is a way of acknowledging the work so many professionals and volunteers do every day to help the hospice.   We all should be proud of the hospice care provided in Nelson and do our bit to help sustain these services.  It is a fun opportunity to also highlight the broader cancer cause and to celebrate life.  Cancer touches us all. Either directly, or through family, friends, or work colleagues.  My Mum was diagnosed recently but is now well on the mend with a renewed lease on life as a consequence of excellent care.  My dance skills will help make other contestants look good.  My wife Linley is hoping for a miracle, while I expect Emma will need to write L and R on my shoes.  Success for me will not be doing a Rodney Hide, dropping my partner, nor a David Seymour, twerking!  Wish me luck, I’ll need it.
