LOCAL morris dancing troupe Olbany Stars had a welcome boost when Leigh Rotary Club donated £950 to buy new dresses.

More than 40 youngsters meet at Peake’s Gym on Firs Lane every Thursday and organiser Eileen Rushworth said: “The Senior Troupe needed new dresses to compete in next season’s championships. This is a massive help to the club as we need to raise over £3000 for dresses for the Tinies and Junior Troupes.”

Leigh Rotary’s Barrie Coates, who presented the cheque, said, “We are pleased to be able to support such a worthy local cause as the Olbany Stars. They offer a great service to the young people of our community, providing fun, exercise, team building and friendship.”
