Saturday February 16
1pm – 5pm
at Brockley Social Club
Join us for our popular annual Midwinter Warmer: an afternoon for Brockley’s senior citizens featuring singing and dancing performances, afternoon tea (cake & sandwiches), and of course a good old natter!
And last but not least our legendary Raffle, in which nobody goes home empty-handed!
Although the event is particularly suited to elderly folk, everyone is welcome.
Even if you can’t come for the whole afternoon, feel free to just come and say hello…
Performances will include:
- The young ladies of Carragher Academy of Irish Dance, led by Monica Larking (see photo below).
- Storytelling and singing performed by Professor Jones and Lisa-Marie
- The “Seniors” choir led by Christine Bond
We are always looking for volunteers to help out with running the event: both beforehand (publicity and collecting raffle prizes) and on the day (general helping out and offering lifts).
It’s a great way to get involved with the Brockley community, and get to know a few of your neighbours.
We always welcome donations of cakes (especially home-made!), and raffle prizes. You can either just bring them along on the day, or contact us in advance to arrange collection.
For raffle prizes, please bear in in mind that recipients are generally elderly folk; flowers, chocolates, biscuits, vouchers (sensible!) and plants all work especially well, but everything is usually welcome. Feel free to contact us if you have any queries at all about this.
If you would like to help out in any way, just contact us at midwinterwarmer[AT]brockleysociety.org.uk
We hope to see you there!
