It's strictly fundraising as vicar takes on charity dance challenge

* Father Lee takes part in a tea dance at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in 2008. 

Llangollen's showbiz vicar is stepping up to take a crack at the famous glitter ball trophy in a great cause. 

In November, Father Lee Taylor is amongst a group of amateurs taking part in the Strictly Nightingales dancing event at the Titanic Hotel, Liverpool. 

The aim is to raise much-needed funds for patient care at Nightingale House Hospice.

Father Lee is no stranger to the limelight as a key member of the British Music Hall Society and also founder and on-stage chairman of Llangollen's Collen Players which stages regular old time music hall and variety shows at the town's Community Hall.

* Father Lee chairs one of the Collen Players music hall shows.

He said: "Eleven amateurs, including myself, from local businesses and organisations are taking on the Strictly challenge to learn to dance with a professional partner over the coming months, culminating in the Big Night of sparkle and sequins on Saturday November 26 when we will perform to an audience of over 350 guests. Who will scoop the glitter ball trophy?

"It’s been 14 years since I last took part in and ballroom or Latin dancing so I’ve some work to do!

"When living in London, I took part in weekly group lessons and regularly attended the tea dances put on in the Floral Hall at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden."

He added: "Please support this good cause.

"Nightingale House offers a wide range of facilities to local people and their families living with life-limiting illness. 

"Patients come from Wrexham, Flintshire, Denbighshire and outlying areas. In 2022 it will cost £4,041,617 million to run the Hospice - this equates to nearly £11,073 per day."
