More than £1,300 has been raised for charity via the recreation of a popular dance that took place in Sudbury throughout the 1960s.

It used to be staged in North Street car park and was organised by a group of friends who are now in their 60s.

In 2011, they decided to recreate the event and hold it indoors at the Delphi Centre but with the same retro theme.

The latest party on December 19 raised £1,300 that will be split between two charities – Macmillan Cancer Support and Sudbury VIPs, a club for people with visual impairments.

Cheques were presented to the charities at the Silkworm pub in Sudbury.
