Looking for a worthy cause Wendy's Wildkatz from Watford decided to focus all of 2009's charity effort on The Keech Cottage Children's Hospice. Providing care for terminally ill children and their families, Keech Cottage is the only Childs hospice covering Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes. Throughout the year the Wildkatz held raffles at each of their socials that featured a live artist as well as holding a sponsored Linedance Marathon in October.
The committee of The Watford Irish Club where the Wilkatz meet on Tuesdays donated the use of the venue for the marathon and a passing group of ramblers who stopped at the club for refreshments had a whip round for this worthy cause and donated £30.00. Through out the day dancers were coming and going with Wildkatz DJ Adrian playing for 10 hours, Alan & Fiona Hayward kindly donated their time and taught a couple of dances and Laurel Ingram popped in to teach a new dance she had choreographed for a competition.
A special event was laid on by Adrian & Wendy with Richard Palmer playing live for the Wildkatz dancers on the last dance night for the Wildkatz which also doubled as a Christmas party when a cheque for £3200.00 was given to Roger Willis from The Keech Cottage Hospice.
Wendy said " I am overwhelmed at the level of support for this needy cause and want to thank the Wildkatz for being such a fantastic bunch, I always knew that they were second to none and I am very proud to be associated with them"
