As it turned out the School needed £200 worth of funding to replenish stocks of the dancers jackets and we fully appreciated that, in such a competitive environment, projecting a professional image is important to boost the dancers' morale.
Clare Appleyard, Practice Manager for QualitySolicitors Bradbury Roberts & Raby said: “As a firm, QualitySolicitors Bradbury Roberts & Raby is proud to sponsor local young talent so donations like this are a perfect opportunity for us to help develop our community.’’
La Danza Principle and Head Dance Teacher, Jayne Burnett added: "Team JB here at La Danza, and all the dancers’ mums and dads, have been blown away by this donation, so thank you so very much from all the competitive dancers. To receive recognition by means of this donation from such a well established and prestigious law firm as QualitySolicitors Bradbury Roberts & Raby is fantastic. Giving something back into the community and to local children, who work very very hard in their chosen activity, is awesome. Thank you again”
