More than 30 dancers got into the swing of fundraising at an event last week.

Oakham mayor Coun Adam Lowe held his second tea dance in the Victoria Hall, in High Street, Oakham on Thursday, and more than £100 was raised for his chosen cause Rutland Reminders.

The visitors danced to the music of Colin Main and during the break, the audience was treated to a demonstration by dancers Karen Dilks and Raymond Newham, who danced the foxtrot, rumba and jive.

Those who attended were served with tea, coffee and cakes.

Coun Lowe was delighted to generate funds for his cause Rutland Reminders, a group of volunteers who assist people living with dementia through singing. He is now looking to arrange further fundraising events following this success of his second tea dance.
