Sponsored by Callwell and supported by Kamma, the annual Agents Giving Charity Ball was once again hailed a resounding success by all who attended as guests danced the night away in this year's Strictly Agents Dancing competition and raised in the region of £50,000 for charity.
The annual charity event, back this year at Epsom Downs Racecourse celebrated the outstanding fundraising efforts of the property industry as well as showcasing its dancing talent with the Strictly Agents Dancing Competition.
Guests enjoyed an incredible evening of awards, strictly dancing, with live band ‘Souled Out’ setting the mood and had everyone on their feet throughout the night!
The amazing Strictly Agents Dancers were on top form on the evening - literally dancing for votes and hearts from the audience.
But there could be only one winner and this year, Abby Scott from Archer & Co claimed the coveted Glitterball Trophy with her stunning Cha Cha Cha which was on a professional dance level according to the judges.
Abby said: “Taking part in this year’s Strictly Agents Dancing was a great opportunity to raise money for a great cause including a charity that is close to my heart. It was an amazing experience, and I had the best time along the way”.
Fellow Strictly dancer, Natalie Barton from Propertymark, adds: “It was an absolute privilege to take part. It was an exceptional experience everyone involved made it all so special. It was honestly an experience I will treasure forever, and I feel so lucky to have been part of this year’s dance cohort."
