Moira Ness, 56, Nairn
Business Owner/Mortgage Adviser

Participating because.......

I get taught how to dance and raise money for a very worthy cause along the way……..can’t say more than that really! I also needed a personal challenge………..I am completely out of my comfort zone with this one! It gives me the opportunity to meet new friends and have lots of fun along the way!

In a sentence.......

I am a fun loving individual and a bit of a perfectionist!

Interesting fact.......

I enjoy cycling and 2 years ago I cycled from the foot of the Dolomites in Italy to Venice, over 6 days......a big challenge for me!

David Hodgson, 58, Holm Park, Inverness
Teacher (Secondary History)
Widower with children Kirstien, 31) and Shaun, 25 and grandson Bobby, 1

Participating because.......

After my wife passed away due to Pancreatic Cancer in August 2018, I decided to do something on her behalf to combat cancer. In 2019, I ran the Manchester Half Marathon and took part in the Inverness Ultra White Collar Boxing event to raise money for Cancer Research. I now want to raise money for the Highland Hospice by challenging myself further and taking part in ‘Strictly Inverness’. On a selfish note, I have always wanted to learn to dance properly.

In a sentence........

I am a determined, confident man who works hard, plays hard and tries not to take himself and life in general too seriously.

Interesting fact.......

I met my late wife in Kuwait when we both took up teaching posts there in the mid 1980s. We also worked in Qatar, the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
