Businesses dance through the decades to support food bank

DANCING TEAM: The team of volunteers from Childrensalon

Childrensalon and Cripps hosted ‘Dance through the Decades’, a fundraising evening in support of Nourish Community Foodbank on Friday 30 June.

Taking place in the Sky Lounge at Cripps HQ on Mount Ephraim, Tunbridge Wells, the evening was compered by local legend Tom Swift. Guests visited the Childrensalon Pop-up Designer shop, danced to music from DJ Luke Swift, bid on auction lots, tried their hand at the Wheel of Fortune and enjoyed the stunning views over the rooftops of Tunbridge Wells.

Gracie Browning, Head of Fundraising at Childrensalon, said: “As long-term supporters of Nourish, Childrensalon were delighted to host this event and raise critical funds for the food bank, especially in the run-up to the long summer holidays, when many families struggle financially. The final totals aren’t in yet, but we were thrilled to announce to the audience on the night that with their help, we have raised well over £5,000 for the charity.”

Dawn Stanford, Operations Director at Nourish added: “We are incredibly grateful to our local community for their ongoing support. Our friends at Cripps and Childrensalon have always been great supporters of Nourish, and it was such a wonderful evening. We would like to thank all of our guests, the teams at Childrensalon and Cripps and Colley Raine & Associates for managing the event, TN1 Bar & Kitchen for the canapés and TWRFC for helping us stock the bar. Finally, thank you to the best double act we could have asked for, the Swift Brothers, who really made the event so special.”
