Danc­ing the (Burns) night away...

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A CHAR­ITY Burns’ Night and ceilidh which raised more than £750 has been hailed as a bril­liant evening.

85 peo­ple at­tended the event, hosted by Mak­ing A Dif­fer­ence (MAD) and held at Robertswood School, Chal­font St Peter on Fri­day Jan­uary 22.

MAD is a south Bucks char­ity which raises funds for chil­dren at risk in Kam­pala, Uganda.

A pro­fes­sional band kept ev­ery­one en­ter­tained and a caller to di­rected dancers through the evening.

There was also a tra­di­tional ad­dress to the hag­gis, with re­sponses.

Board mem­ber Ruth Web­ber, who over­sees the fundrais­ing, said: “It was bril­liant, we had a great night.

“A lot of new faces ar­rived so that was good and other peo­ple seemed in­ter­ested in the char­ity. Ev­ery­one had a great time and ev­ery­one raised some money. A good night had by all, and there were no in­juries, which was good.”

She added: “That was the first one, and it was so suc­cess­ful ev­ery­one said do it again. We were at ca­pac­ity, we couldn’t get any­more in.”
