Talented dancers handed almost £2,000 to the Stroke Association after putting on a charity show in aid of the cause.
Kirstie Pedder, principle of Next Step Dance Academy, organised a performance to raise money for the charity which offered her a lifeline after she suffered from a stroke last year.
The 32-year-old mum from West Wick believes dancing helped her to recover and regain her mobility and balance.
She decided to hold a dance show to thank the charity which provided her family with vital support while she was recovering.
The dance recital at St Anne’s Primary School raised £1,958 for the cause.
Delighted dancers handed their donation over to the Stroke Association.
Next Step Dance Academy is hoping to continue its good work by taking part in a tap-athon in November to raise money for Children In Need.
The dance academy teaches ballet, tap, modern and street dance.
