Kenilworth Round Table and Kenilworth Ladies Circle’s annual Senior Citizens Party held this week was a great success, organisers have said.
More than 210 people attended the party over two nights on Monday March 6 and Tuesday March 7 at Kenilworth Sports and Social Club in Upper Rosemary Hill.
And following the parties, the two volunteer groups will split the £2,000 raised between four charities - Myton Hospices, the Shakespeare Hospice, Young Carers and Acorns Children’s Hospice.
Activities on the two nights included bingo, a raffle and a ‘who’s the eldest’ competition.
Further entertainment was provided by the Silver Line barbershop choir who sang a medley of music.
This was followed by Round Table and Ladies Circle members trying their hand at comedy and music by performing sketches from ‘The Two Ronnies’ and songs by Elvis Presley and from ‘The Blues Brothers’.
Much of the cost of the party was funded from donations by Kenilworth and Leek Wootton residents during the Round Table’s Santa sleigh tour of all the roads in the town and village at the end of last year.
Both Round Table and Ladies Circle were very grateful for the support they received.
A spokesman for the two groups said: “May we thank the sports and social club staff for all their help and our guests that make the evening so special for us at Table and Circle.
“A special thanks should also be made for the generosity of the town residents whose donations during Santa`s travels to make it all possible.”
