Dance through decades and help families living with HD

Scottish Huntington’s Association (SHA) is holding a Dancing Through The Decades event on Saturday, 21 September 2019 at Pollokshaws Burgh Hall, Glasgow, to raise awareness about Huntington’s disease (HD) and generate funds to deliver vital family services.

Fundraising Officer Linda Winters said: “Our Dancing Through The Decades nights are always really popular, and this year’s is set to be an even bigger event to tie in with this very special 30th year of SHA.

“From groovy tunes of the swinging sixties and funkadelic disco of the seventies, to the smash hits of the eighties, our Dancing Through The Decades DJ will take pop fans on an amazing musical journey down memory lane.

“Join us as we turn back time on the dance floor, celebrate the amazing work being carried out by SHA today and look forward together to a better future for families living with HD.”

SHA was founded in 1989 by families living with HD who found themselves isolated and facing a lack of appropriate care because of the stigma and a widespread lack of understanding.

From the grassroots campaigning by families in its earliest days, SHA has grown to become a national charity with global influence, leading the way with the development of the world’s first HD care framework and a youth support model that has been replicated by a number of other countries.

Funds raised at Dancing Through The Decades will go towards the work of SHA in Scotland, helping to reach families through lifeline services including support for young people growing up in HD families, financial wellbeing interventions for those facing hardship, a network of dedicated specialists across the country and bespoke training for health and social care professionals.

Tickets, costing £10, are available at or by calling Linda on 0141 848 0308.
