Our residents and staff were very busy throughout May. Firstly we hosted the Denton Dancing & Social Club, which raises money for good causes by performing at local venues.
Following an invite from our Activities Coordinator, Alison Engleby, ten dancers from the club visited Thamesfield on Monday 22 May in aid of ‘Help for Heroes’. This provides lifelong support to service personnel and veterans with injuries and illnesses sustained while serving in the British Armed Forces.
The dancers showcased a range of styles including ballroom, sequence, Latin and modern line dancing. Some of our residents even joined in.
Everyone who attended made a small donation, contributing to the £55,000 raised for Help for Heroes by the Denton Dancing & Social Club over the last seven years.
Secondly we celebrated ‘Africa Day’ on 24 May with a special African-themed lunch. The menu included ostrich steak, Kenyan spiced fried fish and ‘Peaches Zanzibar’, all prepared by our very own chef.
Finally, we also had a visit from local pianist Pam Chilvers, who played a selection of classical music for our residents. Everyone had a lovely time.
