Parkinson’s Does Strictly was so successful last year, that we are doing it again. The event will see 10 couples taken to the dance floor, perform 2 dances and compete for the all-important glitterball trophy.
Last year’s event was won by Bangor man, Paul McCourt, 60. Paul was diagnosed with Parkinson’s nine years ago, and had never danced before. Paul told us:
"The dress rehearsal was a disaster and on the night I took a freezing episode and literally couldn’t go out! But the third time we were called someone gave me a nudge and I was able to get out there. No one was more shocked than me when we won!"
Nicola McClure, Northern Ireland Regional Fundraiser, told us: “You don’t need any experience, and we can match you up with a partner if you’re an individual.”
