THE White Horse Dance Club held its first dance last month at White Horse County Park in Westbury, and have donated all the proceeds to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

The 70 dancers, enjoyed a great evening of ballroom, Latin and sequence styles, dancing to the music of Graham Darby and raised the sum of £440 which was presented to the charity this week.

The three club committee members, Colin Leet, Bob Shackleton and Geoff Tate were invited to the base in Semington for a tour of the splendid facilities and to hand over the cheque.

It was on the 15 March 1990 that Wiltshire Air Ambulance began operations, so another dance is planned for Friday October 2 2020, in its 30th anniversary year.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance relies on donations to keep saving lives. It is not funded by the Government and receives no National Lottery grants. It costs £3.75 million a year to keep the air ambulance flying.
