BALLROOM dancers stole the show at a charitable tea dance on Saturday.

The Rhythm of Life Band, which organises bi-monthly afternoon dances for people of all abilities, hosted the jolly event in aid of cancer walk-in centre Jane Scarth House.

The centre offers support to anyone living with cancer or their carers in the Test Valley area and charity ambassador Sarah Rowcliffe gave a talk explaining the facility’s work on the day.

A total of £200 was raised through the event held at Andover United Reformed Church Community Hall.

Rhythm of Life Band’s Pete Middleton said: “A dancing demonstration by two of the countries best amateur ballroom dancers was one of the highlights at last weekend’s tea dance.

“There is no obligation to dance and some people simply come along to enjoy the music and meet up with friends.

“The main aim is that everyone has fun with a very added bonus of delicious homemade cakes.”

The next afternoon tea dance will be held at the Andover United Reformed Church Community hall on Saturday, August 4, 3-5pm.
