A local dance group has hit the spotlight with a sparkling awards night - and by raising a staggering £2,429 for charity.

The EDC group held their annual presentations on Saturday at the Grosvenor House Hotel, where it is based.

More than 70 guests enjoyed an evening of performances from the students, along with the main presentations by EDC’s sponsor Russell Sparkes, the owner of the hotel.

There were many awards during the evening, including Aisha Ibrahim, who received the Grosvenor Award for the Seniors; Ross Ellis, Principal’s award for the Seniors; Diana Simoes, Principal’s award for the Juniors; and Lucus Comfort, the Lesley-Ann Sparkes award for the Juniors.

EDC would like to thank the many local businesses for their raffle prize donations and sponsor Mr Sparkes for his support.

The group is looking forward to upcoming events in 2019, with a new musical theatre class starting each Friday evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel at 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
