The weather was fabulous and a massive £1,848.87 was raised on the day, with more to come. All of the proceeds will go to Guide Dogs to support a working guide dog partnership.

Organiser, Wendy Jones, said: “Two of our volunteers who work for Lloyds bank are trying to get match funding and an anonymous donor promised £500 if I could get actor Chris Chittell who plays Eric Pollard in Emmerdale to dance the twist in the main ring. Chris kindly obliged. His dancing partner was a blind lady who did a fantastic job not falling over!

"All in all it was a fantastic day and we are so proud that the much needed funds raised will go towards another life changing guide dog partnership.”
