Dance school supports campaign
OVER 200 signatures have been collected by a family-run dance school for The Comet’s and Stephen McPartland’s campaign for a radiotherapy unit at Lister Hospital.
Footsteps School of Dancing, run by married couple Deborah and Nigel Price, say they were driven to collect the signatures after reading about the campaign in The Comet.
Mrs Price said: “Everybody knows someone who has cancer or has had it and travelled to Mount Vernon.
“They have had to travel so far, for such a small treatment, and they really are too ill to travel.
“I can’t believe that everybody hasn’t got up and done it.

“We read about it in The Comet and said ‘definitely, we will do it’.
“I’m lucky that I have got good neighbours and friends and they know us from dancing so they signed straight away.”

The couple, who live in Letchworth GC, collected 209 signatures for the cause but say their next step is to try and place forms in secondary schools.
Footsteps School of Dancing, beyond their charitable deeds, have also just won several awards in a top competition against some of the country’s best dance schools- including one owned by Strictly Come Dancing’s Len Goodman.
With the Price’s efforts The Comet has now collected 1,209 signatures and that added to the fans of the Facebook page takes us to an incredible 2,486.
But to secure a radiotherapy unit at Lister Hospital and ensure that cancer patients don’t have to endure the journey to Mount Vernon, in Northwood, Middlesex, for treatment we need your help.
