Strictly Come Salsa came to Carharrack recently when a group of fundraisers danced the night away.

Fourteen couples, made up of novice dancers and their pro salsa partners, had just weeks to practise a routine incorporating six compulsory moves. They then took to the dancefloor at Carharrack Social Club where the three judges were all salsa pros and demonstrated the six moves at the start of the evening.

"It was a fabulous evening and was really well attended, ending up with standing room only for late arrivals," said one of the dancers, Julie Eddy.

By the end of the event £1,200 had been raised for Barnardo's which is Sarah Hamshaw's charity of choice for this year's London Marathon. Sarah will be taking part in the marathon but first she had to raise money for the charity.
