Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Denise Fox and Consort, Councillor Terry Fox take to the ice to show off their skills in advance of their first charity performance to Ravel’s Bolero, on Friday 9 December at Ice Sheffield.

The pair first pulled on their ice skates in September, with no skating experience whatsoever, so are nervous about performing in front of the crowds at iceSheffield as part of the Hollywood on Ice show, taking place on Friday 9, Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 December.

The couple will be performing their routine in support of the Lord Mayor’s four chosen charities – St Luke’s Hospice, Support Dogs, Sparkle – which supports children with autism – and the Soldier’s Charity.

As well as collecting donations at the show itself, they are also raising funds through an online donation site, at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=LordMayorofSheffield

Tickets are still available for Hollywood on Ice, featuring more than 200 skaters performing to music from favourite films such as Footloose, Dirty Dancing and Flashdance.
