Dance victory for Bournemouth solicitor

by Lee Taylor, 29 June 2016

Bournemouth law firm Steele Raymond LLP is celebrating after one of their solicitors scooped first place at Lewis Manning’s annual Business Come Dancing Summer Ball 2016.

Steele Raymond property litigation solicitor Simone Ritchie and her professional dance partner Ruby Adams of Pavilion Dance triumphed over ten other dance couples with their 40s-style social dance.

As part of the performance, Simone has raised over £300 for Lewis-Manning Hospice and Parkinsons Dance following the event at the Bournemouth’s Pavilion Ballroom.

“It was a fantastic evening and I am so pleased that we were able to raise such a lot of money for a truly great cause,” said Simone who heads up the property litigation team.

“I am really looking forward to going back next year as a judge and continuing to support the Lewis-Manning.”

Helga Brandt, Head of Marketing and Development at Pavilion Dance South West said: “We are thrilled with the support and commitment that all of our participants have given this year; the standard of dancing was incredible.  We are delighted to have raised funds for our two causes, Parkinson's Dance and Lewis-Manning Hospice, but equally as delighted to see so many people enjoying dance.” 

Steele Raymond Managing Partner, Peter Rolph said: “We are very proud of Simone’s excellent achievements on the dance floor for such a worthy cause. It reflects the tenacity hard work and quick and responsive footwork that she brings to her property dispute resolution and sets a high bar for next year.”
