Trundle Branch of the Royal Far West Children’s Health Scheme held an old time/new vogue dance on Sunday, September 2 at the Memorial Hall Trundle raising funds for a very worth cause.

Dancers from Forbes, Nyngan, Dubbo and Eumungerie enjoyed a wonderful social afternoon dancing to the live music played and sung by Phil Redenbach.

Everyone feasted on a sumptuous afternoon tea provided by the Trundle Branch of Royal Far West and the dancers.

The Forbes Dancing Group meets on a Wednesday night at Forbes Uniting Church Hall, for dancing and social interaction at a cost of $3 per person.

A cheque for $250 from excess funds (after paying rent and insurance) was presented to Royal Far West Children’s Health Scheme Trundle Branch.

This money will go towards implementing the “Come and See programme at both Trundle Schools.

The programme provides literacy and numeracy tuition weekly on a one to one basis. Forbes Dancers welcome newcomers to join them.
