In May 2014 Funky Dance Fever produced their second stage show Dance Explosion in aid of PACT (Parent's Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia) and Amy's Retreat.
Dance Explosion gave our dancers the opportunity to showcase their dancing talents and show their families and friends how much they have improved.
Dance Explosion raised a overwhelming £2500 for PACT and Amy's Retreat!
Dance til we Drop!
In 2012 Funky Dance Fever produced their stage show Dance til we Drop! in aid of Amy's House.
The dancers gave an amazing performance dancing to songs from films, West End musicals and current chart hits.
Through Dance til we Drop! Funky Dance Fever raised an outstanding £1800.11 for Amy's House.
The Sheffield Star published a story on the event:
Amy’s House is a respite facility for children with special needs. As well as caring for children the facility also provides welcome respite for parents and carers, who often don’t get a chance to meet and talk to other adults at the weekend.
Despite there being a growing number of families in need of weekend respite, Amy’s House is the only facility of its kind in Sheffield to offer this type of service.
PACT is a charity which supports the families of children being treated for cancer or leukaemia at Sheffield Children's Hospital.
It provides trips and treats for the families throughout the year including holidays in it's two caravans. PACT also has a house near to the hospital where the families can stay while their child is being treated at the hospital.
Joanne and Stephen Hall created Amy’s Retreat in 2001 after losing their daughter Amy to cancer on 2nd February 2000. Each year they raise much needed funds to provide 24 breaks to families who have a child with cancer.
It is so important for a family to have a break away from the hospital/home routine, to be able to take out as a family to build some special memories at what can be an uncertain time.
