Linedance raises £1,500
by Ollie Cowan

A LINEDANCER afternoon for Macmillan Cancer Support has raised over £1,600 for the charity.

The event, which took place at Southport Town Hall gardens on May 26, is one of the largest line dancing events in the region.

Pamela Walmsley, spokesperson, said: “We are delighted to say it was a great success and raised a total of £1607.40 from the raffle, bucket collection and several donations, which is a wonderful contribution to Macmillan’s funds, particularly as we rely almost totally on voluntary donations to fund our services.

”Every penny we raise makes a lasting difference to people’s lives.

“It was a beautiful afternoon as the sun shone for us once more and there were dancers and spectators from places such as Darwen, Blackburn and Liverpool, who said they have attended these events for several years.

”This is our 15th year of fund-raising at the Line Dances and to date we have only been rained off twice!

“Someone smiles on us so we can continue to contribute to the services that Macmillan provides for cancer patients in our own area.”

The next Line Dance afternoon event takes place on Bank Holiday Sunday, August 25 from 2pm.
