A COUPLE’S charity dance night raised £1,300 for Help for Heroes.

Susan and Monty Carpe attracted nearly 300 people to the Brighouse Sports Club.

Admission was free as was a chilli supper and donations were given to the charity.

The couple’s eldest daughter Odille is a Flt Lt in the RAF and she attended with her boyfriend Flt Lt Jordan Bean, from the north east.

Mr Carpe said youngest daughter Abigail came up with the idea and the night was a tremendous success.

“I have always wanted to organise a dance with the music I like,” said Mr Carpe, a domestic appliance repairman, of Mayster Grove, Rastrick.

He played mainly Tamla Motown, but also soul, reggae and pop. He made the supper and was helped by his wife.

“People had a really good time and the response I got was great and I would like to thank everybody for their support,” said Mr Carpe.

“Help for Heroes is a great charity. Servicemen and women are doing a good job wherever they are to keep us safe.”
