MORE than 70 people enjoyed a night of Latin dancing at The Perry Street Club, in support of The Jemima Layzell Trust.
Guests enjoyed a buffet paid for by local businesses and Matthew John.
Organiser Celia Guppy praised the ‘overwhelming support we have received from friends, family, customers and local businesses’.
She added: “I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who kindly purchased a ticket and gave up their time to make the evening such a great success.
“We are all overwhelmed at our final total which was £1,232 – far beyond our first expectations.”
The Trust thanked Celia for organising the event, its first fundraiser, and thanked Perry Street Club, Complete Meats, Tesco, Barleymow’s, Morrisons, The Co-op, Sainsbury’s, Eleos cafe, The Village Bakery, Roy and Wendy Guppy, Dave and Marilyn Baker, Matthew and Philip John, Joanne Cocker and everyone who supported the event in some way.
Jemima Layzell from Horton, died from a sudden illness in 2012 aged 13.
