The man who claims to have two left feet, will be striding valiantly on to the dance floor to dance the waltz as part of R3 London and South East Women’s Group’s Strictly event.
“I have never danced before - save for the obligatory drunken Dad dancing - but will be armed with a spray tan, some sequins and an ill judged sense of optimism at around 9pm on 27th June in order to raise money for two very worthwhile cancer charities - the Debbie Fund and Orchid cancer,” says Saunders.
He added, “I had the misfortune to lose both of my parents to cancer so these charities are a cause close to my heart.”
Richard, and his dance partner Ayesha Hasan, have set their sights on the glorious glitterball awarded to the couple who raise the most money. Sponsor Richard and Ayesha by donating here.
