Our epic 24hr Danceathon raises £1700 for SECE Mind!

Posted: 2nd May 2019

On Friday 26th April 2019, at midday, we kicked off our 24 hour Danceathon for mental health awareness and suicide prevention, our most elaborate and challenging fundraiser to date! Throughout the entirety of the 24 hour period we needed at least 2 dancers to keep grooving throughout the day. With no stopping, it was safe to say our dancers had quite the challenge ahead of them!

24 hour Danceathon

Just one week ago we kicked off our 24 hour Danceathon, where 13 DJs and over 40 dancers volunteered their time to help raise over £1,800 for #mentalhealth charity South East and Central Essex Mind. To celebrate, we’ve compiled a little montage of the event – enjoy! #FridayFlashbackYou can also read more about our epic Danceathon in our latest blog: https://bit.ly/2PIQnFj

Throughout the entire event, around 40 dancers volunteered their time and energy to help us raise money and awareness for local mental health charity, South East and Central Essex Mind (SECE Mind).
Dancers from ENS, local businesses, dance groups, people we support and even the general public all danced their collective socks off for 24 hours non-stop, helping us raise an astounding £1,886 for the cause – what an amazing turnout!
On top of that, a staggering 13 DJs contributed their expertise to our event for free, which helped keep our courageous dancers energised throughout the day and night.
Lastly, we received a number of donations from local businesses throughout the 24 hours. From free balloons to complimentary food and drink, all of these donations helped make our event an incredible success!

The £1,886 raised will be used to help SECE Mind fund facilities such as support lines and mental health counselling!

If you missed out, you can still pledge your support to the cause here too.

What people are saying about ENS

ENS has been our sole agency provider for the past 8 years. During this time we have worked in partnership to establish an agency service that provides us with the assurance that ENS staff are flexible, highly trained and able to adapt to our working environment across all of our diverse services.
ENS has been able to support our services to a very high standard throughout our geographical locations. Key Performance Indicators often exceed agreed outcomes.
Our relationship with their senior team and operational supervisors is professional and open. We are assured that our long standing working relationship with ENS will continue.
To this end we would not hesitate to recommend ENS as an agency provider to support their organisation.

We needed to fill two last minute vacancies with high quality teachers.  With this brief, Julie from ENS did not disappoint.  One candidate was from Canada and Julie ensured that the move over went as smoothly as possible both for the teacher and the school. 
What impressed me the most was how Julie listened to exactly what I required and so no time was wasted on my part, sifting through candidates who would not have been good enough for my school. I would highly recommend ENS to another school looking to fill their teacher vacancies.

My daughter Lynda has enjoyed 24 hour care provided by ENS since July 2013. The care staff are all well trained & briefed as to her complex healthcare regime & are also very sociable. This is very important to Lynda who loves to talk &interact with them. They also manage her household budget, encourage her to participate in domestic tasks within her capabilities, & promote a healthy lifestyle. The administration of ENS is excellent & has ensured that Lynda has a regular rota of carers & that when stand ins are necessary that they have had shadow shifts with her.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the hard work and support you have offered our Foyer and Parent and Child Scheme in managing the placement of temporary staff.
We appreciate the level of consistency and continuity your staff have bought to the schemes and would not hesitate in recommending the services of ENS Recruitment.
