A DANCE organised by a local business raised nearly £700 for children who are disabled, disadvantaged or suffering from abuse or neglect.

Ace Adventures, based at Dunphail, held a ceilidh, auction and raffle attended by nearly 50 people to thank the community for its support and to celebrate a successful summer season, while raising funds for the Cash For Kids appeal.

Ace Adventures white water rafting guide, Johnny Peisker, said: "There was a great feeling of community spirit during the evening.

"Attendees enjoyed the smooth tunes provided by local artist Joost Oust, munched on a scrumptious roast, swirled around Edinkillie Hall to the Dandy Ceilidh Band, and enjoyed the skirl of bagpipes. The auction and raffle orchestrated by our head guide Jordie provided amusement and objects for auction ranged from vegan friendly deer’s heads, to a dance with a raft guide!"

He added: "We would like to thank everyone who attended and all those who contributed to the event.

"As there seems to be much interest in local community based events, we hope to repeat the ceilidh next year, but make it bigger and better!"
