A successful year of dancing has helped Sidmouth Steppers to raise £1,600 to keep Devon Air Ambulance up in the air.
The group said it was a conscious effort from members as part of its 20th anniversary and support the charity, which is the only county to fly two air ambulances.
The steppers raised the final total through donations and collections throughout the year including their day of dance, May Day dance out and ceilidh.
Liz Clode, squire and original member, said: “This year, due to it being the anniversary year, we chose the charity pre-season and made a conscious effort to advertise the charity and promote steppers along the way.
“We had a banner made to let people know it was our 20th anniversary and that we were collecting for DAAT which was a great idea.
