There were twists, turns, grinding and lots of laughter at Gurnard Pines as the ladies danced to tunes such as ‘She’s So Lovely’, ‘Mustang Sally’, ‘Sexy Silk’ and ‘Dirty’, all under the direction of 3 local instructors.

A total of £2,273 has been raised with more still to come in.

Sarah Spillane, BCD IW TM area manager, said:

“It’s lovely to see all the girls come together and raise such an incredible amount for a cause that helps family, friends or individuals affected by cancer. Everyone loved it even with bruises and aches and pains at the end of the day!”.
