BALLROOM and sequence dancers are being invited to dance the night away for charity.

On Friday (June 17), the St Ives Acorn Cancer Support Group is hosting a dance at Sawtry Community College, between 8pm-11pm.

Tickets are £4 and can be bought on the door. Bring your own drinks and refreshments.

Gordon Dyer, the group's secretary, said: "There will be a raffle, so if you can spare a prize to donate for the raffle that would be much appreciated."

St Ives Acorn Cancer Support Group, which is a registered charity, runs monthly two-hour meetings at three different venues.

The St Ives group was the original, btu the service now has groups in Huntingdon and Ramsey.

The group aims to alleviate the physical and mental distress of people with cancer, their carers, families and friends.

It gives cancer sufferers have a place to go after treatment in hospital to get support, to enjoy alternative therapies, and a place to go to get companionship and more.
