Deputy Mayor cutting some shapes for the NHS

Hastings Deputy Mayor, Councillor James Bacon is always up for lightening the mood.

In recent weeks he has published videos of himself reading stories for children, he got his old Karate suit out of storage and gave us a demonstration of his martial arts skills and now he’s cutting some shapes on the dance floor all in aid of NHS charities by getting involved in #1MinDance4NHS.

1 Minute Dance For The NHS!

As a bit of fun and to raise funds for NHS Charities Together, the Deputy Mayor has taken part in the #1MinDance4NHS. This challenge is being organised by local dancer and performer, Ellie Peacock. Once again, James would like to congratulate Ellie for such a brilliant idea and to get the people of Hastings dancing. This is also a perfect challenge to do in your own home or garden. As you will know from his last dance, James is not a dancer at all and rarely dance at events; however, it is important to get over these inhibitions and have fun, especially when it is for charity. If the Deputy Mayor can do the challenge, anyone can. James has recorded three 1 minute dances and this video is the second of the three dances. This is a short dance to the song, ‘What makes you beautiful’ by One Direction, which may have been muted due to music rights. James does apologise for this inconvenience, although he hopes you get a laugh from the moves and feel free to play the song separately while watching the dance. James hopes that this will give you a chuckle or smile and he will post the final video next week. As this is a fundraiser, if you are able to donate funds for the NHS, via Ellie’s JustGiving link below, that would be much appreciated. James would also like to encourage you all to take part in this challenge by filming your own 1 minute dance and posting it online with the JustGiving link attached. Also, if you perform the dance and can afford to donate £5 (or more) for taking part, this will ensure that the funds continue to come in and go towards assisting our NHS Staff and Volunteers working with Covid-19 Patients. James has already made my donation. Thank you in advance for your generosity and please share this link and video with your friends and family.
