The last dance Camilla and Ian performed was the rumba.
Camilla said how the dance had happy and sad connotations, and she dedicated the dance to Tara's mum, Stephanie, who died in April last year.
"It was very emotional," said Tara. "From the word go I clicked with Camilla and she treated me like her friend.
"They said they had never been anywhere where they were so at home. They said I have a fabulous dancing school and wonderful children."
In the summer, Tara will be having dancing lessons with Camilla and Ian.
She said: "I will definitely invite them back to Royston. I know they will come because they had such a good time."
In terms of raising money, Tara said they did not raise that much.
"Camilla and Ian were expensive, but some times you have to lose a bit in the first instance to do well in the future," she said.
