Our Christmas Winter Ball was a jiving success on 4th December 2015.
We had over 100 guests who use our services attend this annual event. Food was plentiful and the entertainment was varied.
A number of seasoned amateur service users entertained in our Open-mic event, with everyone enjoying some classic rock tunes. This was followed by a seasonal sing-a-long with Harmony Singing Group, who helped get everyone in the Christmas mood. Finally a team of free-style jive dancers from Orpington gave the party that ‘strictly’ feel and entertained with a host of exhibition dances, before encouraging service users and staff alike to take to the floor and ‘have-a-go’.
We had an amazing response to our call for raffle prizes this year with four tables being filled with goodies, including mobile phones, high-street shopping vouchers and toiletries. The Community Options Mangers clubbed together and gave away 6 seasonal Christmas Hampers of food and few guests left the event without a little something!
A huge shout-out and massive thanks go to all the staff, supporters and volunteers who gave up their time to make the event so very special.
