BIG THANKS

19 12 2020

Hope you have a good and safe Christmas. It’s been a very difficult time for everyone this year due to Covid which has impacted upon our and our families lives so much . 
 A very big thank you to all of you who contributed to the zoom session initiatives since March, in total we raised £1, 407.  With special thanks to the volunteers for their cooking sessions and talks.  Also a massive thank you to those of you who made personal donations to Azul Wasi this year which also raised £490 which is amazing.
So a grand total of  £1,897 from the Latin Quarter sessions/ personal donations and Tom’s sponsored cycle also raised £615 this year too.   This will help Azul Wasi greatly going forward. 
If anyone would like to contribute still or purchase a voucher for Christmas or another occasion please let me know. Also looking for other ideas for cooking sessions & talks for the first quarter next year until the classes are able to restart in person. So please get in touch if you would like to volunteer yourself or someone else ! Other ideas/ initiatives for fund raising within covid limits are welcome too.

LQ Christmas shines & raffle -15th Dec

2 12 2020

Latin Quarter Christmas Shines & Raffle – 15th December at 7.30pm on ZOOM with a Salsa Shine work out and raffle to raise money for Azul Wasi. The shine session will be using some of the shine sequences from the Deaf hub tuesday cross body warm up so will be suitable for people who attended that class and those with some cross body salsa experience, not really suitable for total beginners as there won’t be time to teach the shines in full. It will be a good refresher though as we will all be very rusty ! There will be limited places for the session so email LQsalsadundee@gmail.com asap and by 11th December. For those who join this session, you’ll be entered into the raffle and assigned a number upon donation which will go into a bag to be drawn on the 15th on zoom. Donations are very welcome and can be collected/ distributed. Please email back by the 11th December with any donations. If anyone wishes to just join the raffle this is possible, just email and details of how to donate will be provided and you get a number for the raffle.

After the shines session on the 15th December at 8.30pm, there will be a Christmas gathering on zoom for anyone who wants to join for a chat, it’s a free session. Will be lovely to see some of you as it’s been a very long time since March ! Please email LQsalsadundee@gmail.com by 13th Dec for a zoom link for this session though.

Suggested donation for the shine zoom event is £ 4 – £5 each, but if people want to donate less or more that’s fine. We’re aware people are all in different circumstances financially at present. As usual all donations go to the Azul Wasi project in Peru.
