Local ceilidh band The Rusty Relics performed at a charity event held for people with learning disabilities.
The event, which saw almost 60 people through the door, was held in aid of Cambridgeshire Mencap and FACET which are two local charities supporting people with Learning Disabilities in the Fenland area.
Both charities support young people and adults with learning disabilities, including access to community activities and training, arts based activities, a Befriending service and help to provide support which matches individual needs.
The evening was a great success and was enjoyed by service users, staff and members of the public. The money raised will be split between the two charities and will be used to continue the much needed and much loved services in the area that both charities work hard to provide.
Cambridgeshire Mencap and FACET thank March Lions for donating money for the provision of the “Rusty Relics” and for organising for the band to attend the event which made the evening possible.
They would also like to thank Whitings Accountants, Dejex, Debilicious, Rev J Webb, Sainsbury’s, Boyes, M & S, WMS Music, The Red Lion Pub and Storeys for their generous donations of money and/or raffle prizes and the Rusty Relics. Vanessa Droy – Staff Member for Cambridgeshire Mencap said: “It was a lovely evening, we all had a great deal of fun. It was lovely to see everyone dancing and having a great time.”
