Providing WaterAid and having a dance

RESIDENTS in the upper Calder Valley are invited to a Hoe Down dance for water in Heptonstall.

The event is part of WaterAid’s Big National Ceilidh and takes place at Heptonstall Bowling Club, Acre Lane, from 8.30pm on Saturday, October 15.

Whilst residents are stomping their feet in Heptonstall, ceilidhs will also be taking place across the UK and around the world on the same night.

A spokesperson for the event organiser, Last chance saloon band, said: “Ceilidhs are a great social occasion that anyone can join in with so we hope we will see a great turn out from the people of Heptonstall and surrounding areas.

“Just £15 can give someone a lasting supply of safe water, sanitation and hygiene so we hope people will be generous in their support.”

Proceeds from the evening will be donated to WaterAid, a charity that works in 26 countries throughout Africa, Asia and the Pacific Region. Tickets are £4 on the door and to find out more about WaterAid, visit www.wateraid.org/ceilidh or call 020 7793 4594.
