MAKE some noise for Whaley Bridge border morris dancing side The Powderkegs!

Earlier this year, to mark its tenth anniversary, the group held a weekend of dance in the Hope Valley, donating profits from the event to the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation.

At the recent Whaley Bridge Christmas lights switch-on, the Powderkegs took time out from performing to hand over a cheque for £400 to the charity.

Powderkegs spokeswoman Nicki Wall said: “We picked the charity because the people who dance with the Powderkegs come from right across the Peak District.

“Also, an awful lot of us are walkers and climbers, and recognise it is a very worthwhile cause.”
