THE glitz and glamour of Hollywood arrived in a Somerset village at the weekend to raise funds for a variety of charities.
The event in Shipham raised more than £7,000 for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and all of the other charities in the village.
It was organised by the Friends Of Shipham Schools (Foss), and included a red carpet, magicians, ballroom dancers, a jazz band and a DJ.
Foss chairman Mel Edmonds said: “It was so nice for everybody to dress up from all over the community.
“We had lots of sponsorship from local shops and everybody contributed.
“I want to say thank you to the mums of Foss who pretty much put their lives on hold for so many weeks to make the event happen.”
