Hays Travel, Aylsham consultant Lauren Willetts’ husband Matthew, 35, suffered a massive heart attack in June, and the event was held at North Walsham Sports Centre on October 14 to thank the team for saving his life.

Mrs Willetts said: “We had 84 people taking part in the boogie bounce session with lots of support and spectators.

“Our raffle was huge with some great prizes, including holiday vouchers, family days out, beauty vouchers and products, champagne and more.

“Matt’s surgeon Chris Sawh arrived on the day as an amazing surprise and he said the money would be spent on new equipment at the unit.

“And Debby Priddy from ‘Dance yourself fit with Debby’ was spectacular at hosting the event and leading the bouncers who all had so much fun and really loved the day.”
