They raised £1,300 for the charity and their check was given to Yvonne Stott, fundraiser for Rosemère’s community and events.

Dancers pay a small fee to dance and can enjoy homemade sandwiches and cakes during rehearsals.

The money is then collected by 22-year-old group coordinator Barbara Holden, with proceeds donated to local charities.

The donation for the Rosemère Cancer Foundation was collected during the steppers’ Christmas dance, which was attended by 95 members.

It was boosted by £300 raised in 2020 when a dance held as a fundraiser for the charity had to be canceled due to the first Covid lockdown.

Barbara said: “Many of our dancers received treatment at the Rosemère Cancer Center and are now back in dance, so we wanted to recognize the good work that is being done there.

“Having the donation was quite emotional and overwhelming as it meant so much to all of us.

“Not everyone dances – some members prefer to watch or just listen to the music.

“We’re also about friendship and companionship, as well as dancing and helping local good causes.”

The steppers attract an average of 60 men and women per session from across the Preston area and further afield such as the Ribble Valley and West Lancashire.

The members are between sixty and ninety years old.
