You may have seen the recent article in the Press and Journal about the success of the Boogie in the Bar dances that began in the Foundry Bar in Aberdeen. It was such a popular idea that Boogies now take place at several locations across Aberdeenshire including Alford, Ellon and Inverurie.
The Boogie events are a way for people to combat loneliness and social isolation, to get together during the day and enjoy themselves in a warm, people friendly environment where everyone is made to feel welcome and included regardless of their age, disabilities, etc.
We thought it was time that Insch gave it a try and on the afternoon of the 4th of December 2018, we did exactly that! About 50 people came along to the Church Hall and we all had a wonderful time, with everyone enjoying the music in whatever way suited them but particularly by dancing.
The afternoon was such a success that we have decided to try a monthly Boogie in Insch. The next one will be on the 5th of March 2019 at 2pm in the Church Hall. Entry is free. Why not dust of your dancing shoes and come and join us? All welcome!
We would like to say a sincere 'Thank You' to all our anonymous donors. Throughout the year we receive money from people who have handed in donations for us via the hospital or Health Centre or have even paid money directly into our account at the TSB. Often people leave no contact details and sometimes not even a name. This usually means that we cannot thank people for their kindness. If you are one of those donors, please be assured that we really appreciate your generosity.
If however, you are making a donation to us and don't mind leaving contact details, please do so. We always like to say thank you more personally when we can.
