A LOCAL charity is hoping to host a special dance evening later this year as a fundraiser to keep the organisation going.

Hillhead will hold their annual Strictly Kids charity night at the end of May, coronavirus permitting, as the children bust some moves to raise money.

Based in Kilbirnie, North Ayrshire, Hillhead serve all of Ayrshire as well as Glasgow and its surrounding areas.

It was founded by James Smith seven years ago with a pets corner area allowing children, young people and vulnerable adults to experience an outdoor environment with animals.

This has now expanded into a beautiful woodland walkway, an education centre, sensory play zone and picnic areas.

The charity is aiming to expand their eco areas with a new project to grow vegetables, fruit, plants and flowers with the help of their new greenhouses.

In order to help fund the charity’s hard work, they will host their annual Strictly Come Dancing-style event

These funds will also help other charities, organisations, groups and individuals as they can apply to Hillhead for a grant to help them too.

The Strictly event includes children aged six to 16 years-old competing to win the glitter ball trophy. It is open to anyone.

The event is due to take place on Saturday, May 30 at Glasgow’s Village Hotel.
