LOCAL DANCE club Galway Swing will hold a charity night this month to raise vital funds for those affected by the Australian bushfire disaster.
The charity swing night takes place on Saturday in The Victoria Hotel, and kicks off at 9pm with a free swing dance class for beginners. Music from the 1920s to the 1950s will be played from 10pm.
Melbourne native and owner of Galway Swing Paul Neary says he is shocked at the number of lives destroyed by one of the worst tragedies to hit his home state of Victoria.
“It is difficult to comprehend the scale of what has happened – it is too much to take in,” he says. “Many people are simply numbed by the disaster and it is awful to think the fires may have been deliberately lit.”
Admission €10. For more details check out www.galwayswing.com
