On Friday 15th September, just shy of 200 guests attended our first ever Rewind Party at the Imperial Hotel, Blackpool.
The ‘old skool’ tunes from great Blackpool nightclubs like The Adam and Eve, Addisons, Illusions, Rumours and Springs, were reintroduced by local DJ Simon Fish, with special guest appearance from Adam & Eve DJ, Paul Andrews. Simon and Paul had the dancefloor packed all night with music pumping from the DJ balcony in the very impressive Lancastrian Suite. Some party goers even came in original 80s Rara skirts and Wham-esque ‘Choose Life’ t-shirts complete with glow sticks and leg warmers.
With a choice of nostalgic cocktail, either a Blue Lagoon or Cosmopolitan on arrival, and a delicious supper of BBQ pulled pork, pulled beef or falafel burger and chunky chips, The Imperial chefs and staff kept us fed and watered, to ensure we could keep on partying.
As this was a charity event, of course we had to hold one fundraiser, which was our very popular raffle with some great prizes donated by generous supporters, including £100 Argos Voucher, Afternoon Tea at the Imperial, Beaverbrooks Jewellery and food and wine hampers.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all our guests who came and danced the night away and helped to raise the fabulous amount of £4,145.10 net. You have all helped to make a better life for carers and we are so grateful for your support.
The event has proved really popular and we’ve received some great feedback, so we are hoping to make it an annual, September event. If you would like to reserve places for next year, please contact Terry on 01253 393748 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name on the list.
