PPS Chartered Accountants, based in Swindon announces its sponsorship of The Farrell School of Irish Dance.

The Farrell School of Irish Dance offers Irish step dance classes for adults and children aged 4 and over in Swindon and further afield.

The school says it hopes to spread the good-natured fun of Irish dancing, while keeping people fit and helping them to make new friends along the way.

The school will be competing at the World Irish Dancing Championships next year, and will be vouching for the highest honours. The international competition will take place from the 2 - 9 April 2023 at Killarney, Ireland.

PPS Chartered Accountants says it is proud to be a part of this large-scale event.

Sally Holland, Partner, PPS Chartered Accountants added: "We're delighted to be supporting a fantastic group of girls at such a prestigious event. As a company, we are committed to supporting fantastic events such as these. It's hugely important to us as an organisation to give something back to well deserving causes."

The World Irish Dancing Championships take place every year and are described as a culmination of the finest and most talented Irish step dancers from around the globe.

Apart from recognising the passion and skill of thousands of dancers, the competition also aims to raise awareness and uphold the tradition of Irish step dance.

The Farrell School of Irish Dance says it is hoping to take more than 30 of its dancers to the World Championships next year.

The sponsorship from PPS Chartered Accountants is said to be helping to take the school a long way towards doing so. The funds will be used to subsidise the transport costs required to travel from Swindon to Killarney, as well as for two events that the school will organise in preparation for the 2023 World Irish Dancing Championships.

Funds will also be used to host the school's ever-popular Irish Night, which is expected to sell over 200 tickets to the local people of Swindon.

As well as raising more money for the World Championships, the event will endeavour to keep Irish traditions alive in Swindon. The school will also host a live competition in the run-up to the international championships - with over 100 dancers up and down the country expected to attend. 

The founder and principal teacher at the dance school, Clare Farrell, says she is thrilled to be going to the World Championships.

Clare said: "We are beyond thankful to PPS Chartered Accountants for supporting us in making it to the 2023 World Irish Dancing Championships. Our dancers work hard, push themselves out of their comfort zones and always find ways to improve and better themselves.

"So a trip like this is the icing on the cake and they know just to walk on the World's stage is an achievement in itself.  Win, lose or draw, not many dancers can say they've danced at the world championships and they will create memories that will stay with them for a lifetime."
