Guests danced the evening away at Chorley’s Got Soul at the town hall, with £2,604 raised for the Mayor’s Charity Fund: Chorley Mencap, Home-Start Central Lancashire and Derian House.Coun Lees said: “When my husband Roy became Mayor in 2014 I suggested as a fund-raiser for his charities, I would organise an evening dancing to Motown.

“The first Chorley’s Got Soul was a huge success and subsequently three more were held for the two following Mayors. I continued to organise this event, each one with all the proceeds going to local charities.

“I thank everyone there for their generosity.

“I held a dance off competition, with Simona Woods and Grant Davey the winners. “The Lancastrian is a fantastic venue and dancing the night away until 1am to Motown and Northern Soul is a perfect night out for all ages.”
