Thomson Does Strictly


Last month, Thomson Does Strictly was held by the Airways team in Manchester.

The evening featured introduction videos to the six dancers from amongst the cabin crew and pilots, before they took to the dancefloor to strut their stuff for a rumba, paso-doble and salsa.

The three judges waiting to be wowed consisted of a member of Manchester’s own cabin crew, guest judge Lucy from Blackpool Tower – the home of ballroom dancing, and a guest judge from Manchester’s local charity ChildFlight.

Mark Platt from Cabin Crew was crowned the winner after entertaining the audience with his steps and signature move – we would like to wish a congratulations to Matt and his professional dancer Samantha Read from Thomson East Midlands Airport, and everyone else who was involved in the event!

The night also featured a raffle with some excellent prizes, and the chance to win a hamper of wine. In total, the team raised over £2,500 for the Family Holiday Association and ChildFlight – an absolutely fantastic effort!
