Street dancing and rock and roll took over the New Windsor Community Centre on Saturday as part of a 12-hour jiveathon.
Dancers gathered at the centre in Hanover Way from mid-day until midnight in order to raise money for the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.
Trish Murphy, one of the organisers, said that the event had attracted a lot of people.
She said: “We done very well, we have had crowds of people throughout the day.”
Trish along with Marilyn Bowes and Barbara Jenkins organised the event which took place on Saturday.
Approximately £3000 was raised with more money still to be counted.
Trish, who took part in Race for Life last year, said: “We decided to raise money for Alexander Devine because it is a worthwhile cause.
“There is a need for a hospice in the area, it is needed for the children, it’s very important.”
