Fun-filled fundraising Barn Dance for the Contented Dementia Trust!

Shirley Pearce and Val Cuffe-Adams raised an amazing £1,400 by organising the second of their Barn Dance evenings in support of the Trust’s innovative approach to the care of people with dementia.

Guests enjoyed a nostalgic evening dancing to JIG UP, a traditional ceilidh band, at the Loddon Hall, Twyford, on Saturday 17th October, with plenty of games and activities followed by a raffle.

Local businesses sponsored (and named!) their very own dances, including The Veterinary Centre’s ‘Cat Caper’ and ‘Dog Basket’; the Riverways Farm ‘Reindeer Reel’, the Sheeplands Shuffle, the Bridge House Boogie  and the Piper Chatfield Fine Furniture Fandango – testing the ‘caller’ as well as the dancers!

Shirley and Val raised almost £500 through their first Barn Dance in 2014, so this year’s total was a remarkable achievement – and will be a tough act to follow!

Well done Shirley and Val, and our thanks to all those who supported the event and are helping to support the work of the Contented Dementia Trust.
