“It is a charity very close to my heart because I’ve had friends and family who have either had cancer or sadly lost their battle,” said organiser Hannah McCreadie, who raises money for Macmillan each year.

“It was bedlam,” she added, “thirty women drinking and dancing a lot.”

The weekend event, with lots of food and drink and twinkling fairy lights, takes her fundraising total to more than £1,000 over the course of three years.
