WISBECH shoppers took the opportunity to join in some Latino dancing when a salsa marathon was held at the town's Horsefair Shopping Centre on Saturday.

It was hosted by Peterborough-based, Rumba Havana Salsa, who have been running classes for more than 10 years.

Shoppers were invited to join in with the Cuban style dancing, from 10.30am-1.30pm.

Volunteers from Macmillan Cancer Support collected £211.02 at the event.

Horsefair manager Kevin Smith said: "It was a fantastic event and the good weather brought out the crowds. We had literally hundreds of people enjoying the various dance displays the group put on and I even had a go myself."

He added: "To raise more than £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support in just three hours is a fantastic achievement."
