Joyce

It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of my wife, Joyce, on 29th January. She fought hard and long against her cancer but succumbed in the end. We agreed that if one of us passed away first then the other would not give up our dancing so to this end the Tea Dance on 17th February will go ahead as usual in her memory - Fred

Betwixed Charity Dance

  Betwixed Charity Sequence Dance 29th December – over 60 dancers attended our annual Charity Dance at Wincham Community Centre in Cheshire. Joyce is not well enough to dance these days so I had the terrific help of Tony & Jean with the leading, cake making and tea serving, etc. We danced to some great music by David Last. There was a very good array of raffle prizes and Dorothy made sure everyone had a ticket. The whole evening made a profit of £322 and added to this the proceeds of our raffle, held at our Turkey & Tinsel weekend in Llandudno at the begining of Dececmber, means that we have been able to forward cheques value £233 to Prostate Cancer UK (Tony had treatment for this earlier in 2018) & the Haemophilia Society (my brother, who had haemophilia, died from HIV in the early 1980’s after he was given a transfusion of infected blood). A great evening of Sequence Dancing and my thanks to all who attended and those who helped in any way on the evening. Fred.
