‘Strictly Kuits’ raises money for Manchester charities26 Jul 2019
Commercial law firm Kuits hosted a charity dance fundraising event in July, which saw nine team members swap their desks for the dancefloor to raise money for Manchester-based charities.
Part of the firm’s 110th anniversary celebrations and hosted at the Longfield Suite in Prestwich, ‘Strictly Kuits’ raised over £5,000 of vital funds on the night for Wood Street Mission and Coffee4Craig.
The winner of the inaugural ‘Strictly Kuits’ glitterball trophy was litigation associate Vanessa Stuart, who danced the rumba alongside her professional dance partner Thomas Denwood.
Vanessa scored perfect tens from the judging panel of three; Manchester Law Society Chief Executive Fran Eccles-Bech, pro-manchester Chief Executive Sam Booth and professional dance instructor Jonathan Noblett.
Stretford-based Topaz Dance School provided lessons in preparation for the event to the nine dancers, who included Kuits managing partner Steve Eccleston and banking and real estate finance partner Alison Kellett.
Robert Levy, Kuits executive partner, said: “In the last 110 years Kuits has become known for its strong personality and family culture, as well as tremendous community involvement and commitment to charity. In that spirit it was a pleasure to host this event, raising money for local charities and bringing together colleagues, friends and families for a great evening of entertainment.”
