STUDENTS from all of Gunnedahs schools have hit the dance floor to support country kids.
Kids from years four to eight from got to together on Friday at the Carinya Christian School hall to dance the night away with all proceeds going towards rural charity Royal Far West.
Event organiser Kerrie Hargraves said the event supported a worthy cause.
As a mother, secondary teacher and member of the Gunnedah community, my drive toward this fundraiser is quite simple; gratitude, Mrs Hargraves said.
I am forever grateful that my husband and I have two happy, healthy children.
This is a small way of giving to others and an expression of great respect for the work of Royal Far West in supporting many of our local families.
Funds were raised via tickets to the event and donations made at local businesses such as Gunnedah Fashion Fabrics and Second Edition Book Store.
We are very grateful to our sponsors for their generous support, Mrs Hargraves said.
It was pleasing to raise the much needed funds and fundraising will be on going with raffle tickets still being sold at Fashion Fabrics.
Carinya student Anna Bishop was among many students who raved about the event.
It was fun, she said.
The DJs were good and there were great prizes.
It was good to see so many schools together for a great cause.
