A charity’s coffers have been boosted by more than £1,000 thanks to a ceilidh.

Scores of people went along to enjoy the atmosphere at the fifth annual Charity Ceilidh at Downham Town Hall on April 11.

The event raised a fantastic £1,160 which has been divided between Arthritis UK and the locally based The Robert Foot Leukaemia Fund.

The fund was founded in 2002 to honour 33-year-old Mr Foot, who had lost his fight to the condition in November 5 of that year. The charity raises money to support research and treatment.

Roger and Jan Scofield, from the ceilidh, are pictured above presenting a cheque for £580 to Michael Clarke, regional fundraising manager for Arthritis Research.
