Team Mark Hudson Strictly at the Grange’s story

What do I know about ballroom dancing? Having previously said that I would support my wife Laura in having a go and then I get picked and she didn't! so I've signed up to take part in Strictly At The Grange.  A professional dancer will be assigned the unenviable task of teaching me to dance over a few weeks over the spring months and then we all give it a go in a competition being watched by 350 people!  

The event will take place on 26thApril and is being organised by the Grange School Parents Association.  Every penny raised will go to The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust.  The Charity is working to raise awareness of childhood cancer.  They produce educational resources for parents and clinicians, provide vital support to families and fund research into rare solid tumours of childhood.

Every year in the UK just under 4,000 children and young adults receive a life changing diagnosis of cancer. One of these children is Molly, a lovely little girl from the school and their family's experience highlights the importance of early diagnosis and the vital work being carried out by The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust. 

Please dig deep and sponsor me as I fall all over the floor on the night!  Every penny you give will make a difference to the lives of children and their families who are facing childhood cancer. 

If you want to come a long and have a laugh, let me know. 

thanks so much.


if you are a UK taxpayer please don’t forget to tick the gift aid box when you make your donation.  This allows the charity to reclaim tax relief on your donation and increases the amount they receive by 25%, at no extra cost to you. If you’re a higher rate taxpayer you can personally claim further relief through your tax return.  


Grange School Parents Association

The role of the Grange School Parents' Association (GSPA) is to organise events for the social benefit of the children, their parents and the wider school community for the financial benefit of the children, the school and occasionally charities that the school has chosen to support. We are one association that serves both the Junior and Senior Schools.

Currently at The Grange Junior School, Hartford is a special little girl, Molly, who has experienced things no one should have to. A few days before her 6thbirthday, Molly was diagnosed with an aggressive and rare tumour, and underwent gruelling chemotherapy and proton beam therapy treatment for it.

Molly loves ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.  

As a result, the Grange School Parents’ Association with support from parents are throwing our next event ‘Strictly at The Grange’ to raise awareness and funds in aid of the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust, a charity dedicated to improving early diagnosis of childhood cancer. The event takes place 26th April 2019.

All money raised will be donated to 'Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust'.

Registered Charity Number: 1166838.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
