Celebrities teach staff dance moves

CELEBRITY dancers brought a touch of glamour to an energy company’s North-East offices today (Tuesday, September 24).
Olympian Colin Jackson and Strictly Come Dancing star Erin Boag visited npower's offices in Peterlee, east Durham, and in Rainton Bridge, Houghton-le-Spring, to perform routines for hundreds of workers.
The visit was timed to coincide with preparations for the World's Biggest Coffee Morning, organised by Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday.
The Welsh hurdler, who came second in the BBC dance contest in 2005, said: “We had a wonderful day.
“The call centre staff were very enthusiastic about myself and Erin. We first gave them a masterclass to give them an insight into dance.
“Erin was the real leader. She taught them how to salsa and they had to do a performance in front of their colleagues. Both performances were very good.”
He added: “We were also trying to get them inspired for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, organised by Macmillan Cancer.
"Like many people, I have lost members of my family to cancer, including both of my grandparents, so Macmillan is a charity that is close to my heart".
Clare McDougall, head of community for npower, said: “npower has been raising funds for Macmillan for the past nine years, and we’re keen to continue this with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
“To date, npower has raised in excess of £2.3m for Macmillan.”
