Alzheimer’s Research UK WW2 musical fundraiser successNovember 3, 2017 4:25 pm
On Saturday 21st of October we were honoured to host our second fundraising event in aid of a charity close to our hearts, Alzheimer’s Research UK. The charity is making pioneering steps in devising treatments to prevent, slow down and ultimately cure dementia. Having experienced the disease in both a professional and personal setting Home Care Preferred are delighted to be able to support their work where we can.
Our ‘We’ll Meet Again’ World War 2 musical was enjoyed by young and old alike – many donned their finest 1940’s inspired gear and really got into the spirit of the evening. The Compton Players were once again on fine form performing the show with passion and pizzazz. It was lovely to see so many who lived through war-time Britain singing along to all the old favourites and waving their flags proudly; many commented on how it brought back memories of the comradery that was present during those year, we also spotted many a Grandparent sharing their stories over the Fish & Chip supper provided by Rocky Reef Fish & Chips.
We are proud to announce that we managed to raise a grand total of £722 for the charity, a figure we are extremely happy with and know will make a big difference to the charity’s work. A big thank you to everyone who helped make the evening such a success, and to those individuals and organisations that donated some top-quality raffle prizes.
We will be hosting another We’ll Meet Again event next year – so keep your eyes peeled for tickets in 2018Tags: dementia, fundraising
