A lively Ceilidh saw more than 150 guests dance the night away - and raise thousands of pounds for charity. 

The event, in aid of Alzheimer's Research UK (ARUK), paid homage to Scottish traditions including piping in the haggis, Robbie Burns poems and fantastic speeches.

Organised by Anthony Layden, Lynn Chapman and Paula Still, whose family has been directly impacted by Alzheimer's, it raised £5,700 for crucial research and support programmes.

Guests at Otterbourne Village Hall enjoyed a traditional supper, dancing to the vibrant Ceilidh band, and participated in age-old Scottish customs, including the ceremonial addressing of the haggis and toasting the laddies and lassies.

Raffle and auction prizes included items from Marwell Zoo, The Ivy, Beaulieu, The Bugle, and Winchester Golf Club.
