She said: ‘My mother has Alzheimer’s disease so we wanted to do something to raise money for charity and the Alzheimer’s Society was a natural choice.

‘Mike Sterling offered to perform and sang pieces from Phantom of the Opera and Frank Sinatra.

‘We had about 100 people turn up, from friends and family to Kurve Fit regulars, and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.

‘When we counted the collection at the end and saw we had raised £200, we were delighted.’
