Kilcullen in Strictly Scouts for Barretstown

Two members of Kilcullen Scouts will be among the 28 couples taking part in a county-wide Strictly Dancing competition to be held in November, writes Brian Byrne.

The event is being organised by South Kildare Scout County in memory of Sarah Swaine, and the proceeds will be given to Barretstown.

“We will be setting up a charity page so people can donate online,” says Stephen Biddulph of Kilcullen Scouts, who is on the organising committee.

Sponsorship and funding of all kinds will be welcomed for the event, which is being held in Keadeen Hotel on Thursday 10 November. Opportunities for such help include programme advertising, donations of goods and services for raffles, and the services of makeup artists, beauticians and hairdressers on the day.

Information will be available on a dedicated Facebook page.
