Hundreds of pounds have been raised by a group of dancers.

The Yatton Sequence Dance club two-stepped and waltzed the night away in Claverham to raise money for a life-saving charity on Sunday afternoon.

More than 30 people danced in sequence around the village hall, in Bishops Road, to raise cash for the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC).

Couples followed one after the other in various dances including the quickstep, waltz and tango.

Club chairman Alan Hale said: “It was a really good evening despite the lower numbers – this is as a result of a last-minute venue change.

“Everyone put their shoes on and away they went.

“We had representatives from GWAAC give a talk and man a stall and the final fundraising amount is not in yet.”

The dance group hosts weekly tea dances on Thursdays from 2-4.30pm at Claverham Village Hall, in Bishops Road.
