Age UK and Wisbech day centre debut “hit” Christmas party.
AGE UK Cambridgeshire joined forces with The Oasis Community and Children’s Centre to stage a “hit” Christmas party.
Festivities began on Friday morning where a raffle, buffet and musical favourite; ‘Hank’ kept party-goers entertained.
The local event is the first to invite members of Fenland’s day centres to enjoy a bigger and better bash this year; up to 40 members from Oasis and Boyden Court day centre united for the occasion, despite terrible weather conditions.
Lynne Hayden; organiser for the Oasis Centre said: “The weather nearly stopped it from taking place, but FACT (Fenland Association of Community Transport) saved the day and brought our rural clients to the party. If it wasn’t for them, most of the people who came wouldn’t have been there.”
“It was an absolute hit.” She added.
