FOUR policemen organised an Irish barn dance to help them raise more funds for disabled and disadvantaged youngsters across the UK.
Pete Shields, Jonathan Edgar, Mark Thorold and Shaun Lewis are using cash from the event to help fund their involvement in the Wooden Spoon Vauxhall Four Peaks Challenge.
All four work in the Dewsbury police division area.
The challenge will see them join 60 other teams - each made up of three competitors and a driver - in conquering Ben Nevis in Scotland, Helvellyn in the Lake District, Snowdon in Wales and Carantouhill in Ireland in under 48 hours.
Each team is committed to raising at least £3,500.
Pete Shields said: "The night was a huge success. More than 140 people attended and we had to turn people away at the doors in the end.
"We held a raffle and an auction and thanks to the support of all the members of the West Yorkshire Police Force and support staff who attended that night we managed to raise more than £700."
The team is now gearing up for the challenge, which takes place in early July.
Pete added: "I had my first introduction to Wooden Spoon when I ran in the London Marathon four years ago dressed as a spoon to raise funds for the charity.
"I had heard of the Four Peaks Challenge and wanted to take part, so I managed to rope some work colleagues in to form a team and here we are."
He added: "Wooden Spoon helps lots of projects each year across the country and can make a real difference to the lives of the people it helps.
"We are still seeking sponsorship for the event so we can raise the minimum of £3,500 and are in talks with local companies to see if we can secure a deal."
