Childrensalon and Cripps recently hosted a fun event dubbed ‘Dance through the Decades’, in support of Nourish Community Foodbank. Taking place in the Sky Lounge at Cripps HQ on Mount Ephraim in Tunbridge Wells, this well-supported evening was compered by local panto legend Tom Swift. During the evening 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 commented; “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 on the night we 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. We would like to thank all of our guests, the teams at Childrensalon and Cripps, Colley Raine & Associates for managing the event, TN1 Bar & Kitchen for the canapés and TWRFC for helping us stock the bar, and finally, the best double act we could have asked for, the Swift Brothers, who really made the event so special.”
