Friday 22nd September saw Robert Taylor as George Michael, come to the wishes function room and perform his greatest hits to our amazed guests. He was joined by Charlotte Reilly a 17 year old aspiring singer with a bright future ahead of her and the voice of an angel.
The evening was fantastic, food was delicious and with Gary Conley as compere, we couldn't have asked for more! Our guests fully enjoyed themselves and even had the chance to get their hands on some great prizes donated to us from several sources.
A very special thankyou goes out to Charlotte, who with only 24hrs notice, performed a full set for us!
On 29th September 2017, we decided to hold another Volunteer Awards Evening, to celebrate the individuals who keep the cogs turning, and make the HoneyRose what it is today.
No matter what we ask, it is never too much for our hearty volunteers, who continue to make us proud every single day.
This year, we invited The High Sheriff of Merseyside, Stephen, and his lovely wife Gill to come and present the awards to the volunteers. They arrived early and spent a good hour talking with the volunteers, getting their stories and expressing their gratitude for the work that they do for the community.
Nights such as this are SO important! We know that without our team, the work we do would cease to continue, and for that, we are eternally grateful!
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.
