70s Dance Off in Tameside
On November 18th, staff and service users from Tameside raised £280 for WaterAid and Creative Support in a sponsored 70s fancy dress dance-a-thon. Projects also prepared a ‘bring and share’ buffet to keep the dancers going and there was also a raffle with lots of fabulous gifts to be won. Service users were recognized for their hard work in the run up to the event and on the day.
Latour Henry won an award for being the best dancer and Gail Jones won the award for the best costume. Richard and Alan from Neal Avenue also won an award for raising the most the money, a staggering £180! Micheal, Wayne and Brain from Manchester Road had this to say about the event: ‘It was really nice to get together and have some fun as well as knowing we are collecting money for people who don’t have clean water.’
All proceeds from the day were split between WaterAid and Creative Support, to contribute to a summer gala being planned by the Tameside projects for next summer.
