Every week, we at the Whitehaven News help you to shine a light on the unsung heroes within your communities.

From setting up support groups and checking on neighbours to hosting street-wide, socially-distanced concerts and getting the whole village singing together, we’ve seen you do it all over the past few months.

And there’s just no stopping you all, with dance-aholic key worker Bethany Guise being named our Person of the Week.

If the West Cumberland Hospital worker doesn’t do enough in her work on the domestic team, Bethany spent her breaks and any free time she had putting together dances to get her colleagues moving – and grinning from ear-to-ear.

Those behind Bethany’s nomination said: “She choreographed a feel-good dance for her team she works with in an afternoon and taught them on their breaks, and then went in on her days off to teach the morning shift.

“Everyone really enjoyed the practices and dancing together, and it let them all release tension.”

The Mirehouse woman put a team of around 30 domestic workers together whenever she could to teach them her dances to We're All in This Together and Reach for the Stars, before posting the resulting videos on Facebook – reaching more than an amazing 2,000 people.

Delighted – and very surprised – by her nomination, Bethany said: "I'm really shocked – it's just so lovely to know somebody nominated me.

"I just wanted to lift spirits at a time when life is really surreal and scary at the hospital, so decided to do what I do best, which is dance!"

She continued: "Everybody said it was lovely, and really made them smile which was so nice. It really helped me as well, because I'm really missing my dancing – to do this, it just got me back to dancing and back on my feet, which I loved."

The Dance Ranch member added: "I'd love to say thanks for all your support, everyone who got involved – I just want them to know they're so brilliant, and to keep sticking together, keep going and keep smiling!"
