She began staging her annual charity dances in 1990 and says: “Over the years many thousands of pounds have been raised.

“I don’t have a total for them all, but since 2005 just over £12,500 has been raised.”

This year’s event is in aid of the Angles Theatre, in Alexandra Road, Wisbech, where Sue has been a volunteer for some time now, selling programmes, taking tickets, etc.

The doors open at 7.30pm on November 30, and dancing will be from 8pm until midnight.

Sue adds: “There won’t be a bar, but you can bring along your own booze.

“There will be a raffle during the evening and I would be grateful for any raffle prize donations before the event.”

Please contact Sue if you are able to help with a raffle prize.
