Line dancing group puts the kettle on

A LINE dancing group raised £800 at a coffee morning for a specialist education college.

The Rushden-based Happy Feet group held the three-hour event in support of Hinwick Hall College on February 11.

The coffee morning included cake, crafts and tombola bottle stalls.

Disability causes are close to the heart of Linda Toleman, who is the leader of the Happy Feet group, as her son Mattie is autistic.

The Happy Feet group has a long history of fundraising for charities and last year it raised just over £2,000 for disability charities.

This year Hinwick Hall College is Happy Feet’s chosen charity for six months.

So far the group has raised £1,500 to help support Hinwick Hall College’s disabled students.

The college’s acting principal Elsbeth Tibbetts said: “We would like to thank the Happy Feet line dancing group for their generosity.

“Their dedication and support will make a real difference to the lives of our disabled students.”
