International Older Persons’ Day 2019
Getting Together had 150 people attending our annual International Older Persons’ Day at Bushey Sports Club on Thursday, 3rd October.
The Feathers & Fedoras theme was a hit with all, and everyone enjoyed learning the Charleston with Julie from JiveSwing. Our entertainers Ashley Webber, Big Mama Funk and Tiffaney Wells made the day go with a swing!
The catering students from West Herts College worked hard all day preparing and serving a delicious lasagne.
We had a fabulous raffle with donations from Bill’s, Iguanas, the Prince George pub, The Kitchen Croxley, Sweets for All and many more.
We had support from many organisations throughout the event. This included trishaw rides, massage and reflexology.
