Sue Tasker is one of our Strictly Charity dancers and is pictured here at Ufford Park with one of their Directors Tarnia Robertson. Ufford Park has kindly offered us a wonderful prize for our draw which takes place at the Strictly Charity Grand Finale on Friday 2nd May here at Inspire Suffolk in Ipswich. The Hotel, Golf and Spa have offered us as a prize a voucher for two people to have a Twilight Spa Experience - which includes two hours in their Thermal Suite Spa one evening (Monday - Wednesdays) which sounds like sheer heaven! Our grateful thanks to Tarnia and her team at Ufford Park for this generous prize and too to Sue for being one of our Strictly Charity participants – good luck Sue! 

We are so pleased to announce our live band for our glittering, grand finale next week is non-other than popular function band The Alibi Club. The four piece, female fronted rock, pop and blues covers band will be entertaining our audience on the night once the judging has been completed and the winning couple have been presented with their glittering Trophy.  The Alibi Club cater for many different types of events including weddings and corporate events and are always a lively addition to any party. The evening will be compered by Peter Purves and our VIP Celebrity Judges are none other than BBC Radio Suffolk’s Lesley Dolphin and Gary Avis - Principal Character Artist & Ballet Master for The Royal Ballet Company – who has also been a guest coach and appeared on Strictly Come Dancing with Darcey Bussell.   

We'd like to extend our grateful and heartfelt thanks to the members of Waldringfield Golf Club and their past Club Captain Peter Rowbottom pictured here with our CEO Terry Baxter for raising a massive £4,875 for Inspire Suffolk. Peter came to see us at the beginning of his year to explain that he had nominated us as his chosen charity which we were delighted to hear. Terry Baxter says "We are overwhelmed by the amount of money Peter and his fellow golfers have managed to raise on our behalf." He continued "As an independent charity we have to raise 100% of our funding each and every year so that we can continue to reach out and steer the young people of Suffolk onto bigger and brighter futures." Inspire Suffolk use sport as a way of inspiring young people back into Education, Training or Employment.
