FUNDRAIS­ING FAIR FOR HOS­PICE

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

TEA, cake and nos­tal­gia was served up at Michael So­bell Hos­pice’s an­nual Vintage Af­fair on Sun­day.

The hos­pice, based at Mount Ver­non Hos­pi­tal, in North­wood, packed its vintage tea rooms with visi­tors and kept them en­ter­tained with mu­sic from live jazz bands.

The Tony Oliver Jazz Band, Star­dust Big Band, Mixed Emo­tions Band and Pimp My Jazz all gave up their free time for the event.

Another of the big draws was the ar­ray of clas­sic cars on show from the Uxbridge and Dis­trict Clas­sic Ve­hi­cle So­ci­ety and the Wat­ford and Dis­trict Clas­sic Ve­hi­cle Club.

The Red Cross also pro­vided mas­sages to rev­ellers, who were en­cour­aged to at­tend in wartime era clothes, and there was vintage hair styling and stalls. There was also a chance to en­joy the Wim­ble­don fi­nal with Prosecco and straw­ber­ries.

Or­gan­iser Bev­er­ley Gar­ber said: “This is the fifth year that we have planned this pop­u­lar event.

“Thanks so much to ev­ery­one who came along and sup­ported the event and to all the vol­un­teers and groups who gave up their free time.”

Chil­dren also had the op­por­tu­nity to meet Jimmy Jam Tots Bear from the Wind­mill Stu­dio in Ruis­lip Manor.
