Toe-Tapping Tea Dances

Local people are being invited to set their toes tapping at a Tea Dance at Peopleton Village Hall on Sunday, 26th October.

The event will run from 2.30pm until 5pm and is being organised in aid of St Richard’s Hospice.

To ensure energy levels are kept topped up there will be a delicious afternoon tea available.

Ann Price, one of the organisers said: “The tea dances are very popular and a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. There will be plenty of different dances including ballroom and sequence and you can come along on your own or with a partner. Everyone is welcome.”

Tickets are £5 each and are available on the door but please call Ann Price on 01905 840204 so they know how many refreshments to provide.

Paul and Enid McGuire will provide the music and put dancers through their paces if needed.

There will also be dances on 23rd November and 14 December.

St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative care for patients living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and supports their families. Each year the hospice team supports over 2,500 patients and family members in Worcestershire.

Patients are cared for in Day Hospice, the 16-bed In-patient Unit or in their own homes by a specialist professional team as well as many trained volunteers.

In the In-patient Unit specialist staff are on hand 24 hours a day to manage patients’ symptoms and where, if appropriate, patients may spend the last few days of life in comfort and dignity. St Richard’s is an independent charity and is grateful for all donations towards their work.
