Taking to the floor for sake of hospice
NANCY Dodd, of Wells, encouraged her friends to put on their dancing shoes and take to the floor at Henton Village Hall.
This was no ordinary Tea Dance, the aim in bringing everyone together was to raise funds to support the work of St Margaret's Hospice and to try to exceed the funds raised at a similar event held three years ago.
Nancy achieved all her aims by raising £1,200 for the local hospice and providing everyone with a very enjoyable afternoon.
Sue Medlicott, fundraiser with St Margaret's, said: "We are so very grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of the afternoon.

"Nancy spoke very movingly of the care that a friend had received from the hospice earlier this year.
"The staff at St Margaret's care for local people living with an illness for which, as yet, there is no cure.
"Fundraising events, such as this wonderful Tea Dance, are an expression of appreciation of the difference that this care can make to the end of life of a friend, or member of a family. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this great fundraising success."
