More than 100 skaters from Deeside Ice Skating Club performed their annual spectacular Charity Ice Show at Deeside Leisure Centre last weekend.

The performances, over two nights and starring skaters as young as five-years-old, were a tribute to classic films, including Grease, Oliver and The Jungle Book.

The shows were attended by around 400 people, they were treated to some amazing performances, including solo dances from Molly Robotham and Beth Powell.

Each show concluded with an emotional performance from skaters and their families.

This year’s chosen charity was Children with Cancer UK  and more than £700 was raised over the two nights. 

The Chair of Deeside Ice Skating Club Jo Gillmore said:

“I can’t begin to say how proud I am of every single person involved.

No matter how small a part they played either on the ice or backstage everyone’s contribution was important and much appreciated.

Everyone involved should be proud of what we achieved, we couldn’t have done it without all them.

Thanks to all Deeside Leisure Centre and Ice Rink Staff and Dee Rink Live for their continued support!

We are pleased to announce that we raised an amazing £712 in aid of Children with Cancer UK.”

Club president Joanne Murray added,  “It was another amazing weekend. We are very proud of all our talented young skaters for putting on such wonderful performances and for such a deserving cause.”
