1940s Tea Dance a roaring success

Last week Home Instead East Notts hosted a 1940s themed Tea Dance to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. The event was held at the Grange in Radcliffe on Trent and was attended by close to 100 people. Many made the effort to dress up and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.
The office team provided sandwiches, cakes and refreshments and a local entertainer called Johnny Victory provided the singing and dancing. Locals and clients of Home Instead danced alongside regulars to the Friday afternoon Tea Dance organised by the Glenda Mary Dance School. It was wonderful to see so many people dancing and singing along to the war time songs and was especially apt with the anniversary of VE Day falling three days later.
In total the event raised £451 for the Alzheimer’s Society. Co-Owner of Home Instead East Notts, Richard Aram, commented “it was refreshing to see so many locals make the effort to come out and enjoy a fun afternoon full of song and dance and gave us all an opportunity to reminisce with those who lived through the 1940s. I would like to thank Glenda Mary for helping us to arrange this event and everyone who came along to help raise funds for this worthy cause”
