Dancing the (Burns) night away...
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.”
