TAP dancing group the Fovant Follies raised £3,630 at a cabaret evening in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

As well as tap, the event at Dinton Village Hall, included belly dancing and burlesque by Rainbows of the Desert, songs from The Ali Barbers Barbershop, and a Ceroc dancing display.

Dan Evans was the compère, with Matt O'Sullivan at the piano.

Organiser Gemma Barnett said: “After discovering that one of our tap class had been diagnosed with cancer, I decided that we needed to do something and the idea of a cabaret evening was formed.

“I would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone who took part in our Cabaret evening making it such an incredible success; the performers, the volunteers who helped with the buffet and backstage, Champion Bars of Southampton who donated 5 per cent of their takings, the wonderful audience and all those who gave donations.

“I would also like to thank the Anton Jurgens Charitable Trust (UK Branch) for their amazing donation to Macmillan on our behalf.”
