MORE than 40 students from a dance school raised £800 for charity with a sell-out performance in Spennymoor.

Tap dancers from Nichola's Hall of Dance, in Spennymoor, aged from three upwards, performed in the show at Spennymoor Town Hall. More than 300 tickets were sold, with the funds raised going to Trinity Methodist Church, in Spennymoor.

"The girls danced to Somewhere Over the Rainbow, sung by Claire Warren," said Wendy Hall from the school. "The show was a sell-out, selling more than 300 tickets and we made £800." Classes at Nichola's Hall of Dance take place on Monday evenings at Spennymoor Town Hall.
