We support two local charities in Rickmansworth on a regular basis. These are Swan Care, who look after the swans on Rickmansworth Aquadrome and the waterways in the area, and CVSS who teach children and adults with disabilities to sail on the Aquadrome.
The funds raised by the Side come from three sources: from membership subscriptions paid by Side members, from collections during our performances at local public houses etc, and finally from the fees charged for dancing at events.
This money is paid into our “bag” (our bank account) and from this fund we pay expenses such as hire of hall, insurance, subscriptions etc. At the end of the year we donate as much as we can to charity.
We are also an integral part of the Rickmansworth community with links to the Rickmansworth Residents Organisation:
