A beauty therapist will be adding an extra touch of glamour to the Chron’s charity dance contest.
Yin Jeune, who owns Fong Day Spa, in Weston Favell, Northampton, will take part in Strictly Northampton at the Royal & Derngate this Saturday.
The 32-year-old said she was in it to win it and also to raise funds for charity.
She said: “First of all I decided to take part because it was a charity event.
“Dancing is always something I have wanted to do and I want to keep fit.
“I hate the gym and I’m really not fit. This has got me fit and I have also been able to learn a new skill.”
Yin is partnered with professional dancer, Jordan Goodenough, and the pair will perform a cha cha, an American smooth waltz and a freestyle routine in front of a panel of judges on the night.
She said: “I’m looking forward to it and I’m out to win, definitely. I will try to get a lot of support.
“This is something I have always wanted to do and I hope I can raise a lot of money.”
Yin held a charity fund-raiser, offering a variety of beauty treatments, to raise funds for the Chron’s appeal at her spa in The Boulevard, Octagon Way, on Thursday November 16.
Strictly Northampton 2012 will support the Chronicle & Echo and Macmillan Cancer Support’s appeal is to raise £1.55 million to help fund a new blood cancer unit at Northampton General Hospital.
Yin said: “I am hoping to get all of my clients involved. It will be good because it’s all for charity and it’s also about the whole experience as well.”
