On Friday 25th August, we launched what is hoped to be the first of our monthly Tea Dances held in The Wishes Function Room in the Foundation’s town centre building. Attended by local people from across the area, including from residential care homes, the event was a resounding success with all those attending wanting more and committed to bringing their friends with them in the future. The afternoon included a wide selection of cream cakes, scones with tea and coffee and drinks from the bar, followed by a couple of games of bingo, a raffle and then the opportunity for them to relive their younger days with dancing to everything from waltzes from the 1940’s up to Rock ‘n Roll from the 50s and 60s.
Lynn Duffy MBE, founder and CEO of the HoneyRose Foundation, said that the afternoon was a greater success than she could have hoped for and thanked the volunteers that helped put the afternoon together. The next Tea Dance is scheduled to take place on Friday 29th September and on the last Friday of every month going forward. The only exception will be in December when there will be a Christmas Lunch followed by the afternoon Tea Dance.
