FUNDRAISING FAIR FOR HOSPICE
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.
