A dance principal from West Wick has raised hundreds of pounds for a charity which helped her after she suffered a stroke.
Kierstie Pedder, aged 32, put on a performance with Next Step Dance Academy to raise money for the Stroke Association.
The mother-of-one suffered a stroke in June last year and she believes dancing helped her to recover and regain her mobility and balance.
She wanted to put on a routine to raise money for the charity which has been a lifeline for her family.
She said: “The Stroke Association has been a great lifeline for me. To raise money for a cause so close to my heart is my way of saying thank you for everything they have done for me, and to help other people in similar situations to myself.
