Hundreds of pounds have been raised for Great Western Air Ambulance Charity thanks to dozens of dancers.

People laced up their dancing shoes to take part in a large fundraising event at Claverham Village Hall.

The event, organised by Yatton Sequence Dance Club, saw people take to the floor to support Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC).

The club’s chairman Alan Hale said the event had been a major success.

He added: “Every year we have a charity dance and this year we supported GWAAC.

“Everything the club collects goes to the charity.

“A great time was had by all, with loads of fun, and plenty of cakes at tea for all the dancers.

“About £600 was raised for GWAAC.”

The fundraising drive was boosted by a raffle and a cake competition.

GWAAC was chosen as the club’s charity of the year in a members’ vote.
