Strictly Wheels Foundation

We are proud to announce the launch of the Strictly Wheels Foundation, a registered charity to promote Wheelchair Dancing.

Strictly Wheels came about as a public profile of Paula Moulton and Gary Lyness as they began dancing to help create a voice for Wheelchair Dance Sport in the UK.  Paula and Gary are most remembered for their appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2012 where they wowed the judges with their routines and made it to the live semi-finals.   They have also competed for Team GB in Wheelchair Dance Sport for the last 5 years and have competed at IPC Level achieving World Ranking since 2014.

They are now very excited to launch the charity Strictly Wheels Foundation which will work both locally in Manchester, providing facilities for wheelchair dancing, and continuing to promote and raise awareness of the sport throughout the UK.  The charity will also retain its name “Strictly Wheels” as a working name which is synonymous with wheelchair dance in the UK.

They have brought together Trustees with a wealth of experience in both the public and private sector in Fundraising and campaigns along with training, project management and health and fitness who will drive the charity forward.

We are extremely pleased to have full funding in place to run an exciting range of events coming in 2016 so look out for more information coming soon.  Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter for live announcements.
