A re-creation of a popular annual dance that took place in a Sudbury car park in the 1960s has raised more than £1,300 for charity.
Organised by a group of friends, now in their 60s, the party was staged in North Street car park throughout the decade.
Because they remembered the event with such fondness, they decided to recreate it indoors but with the same 1960s atmosphere. The first re-creation at the Delphi centre in 2011 proved such a success that the crew have gone on to four further parties at the venue.
The latest, on December 19, raised £1,300 that will be split between two charities – Macmillan Cancer Support and Blind Children UK.
Cheques will be presented at the Silkworm pub in Sudbury. During the past five years, the event has raised around £20,000 in total for organisations including the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
