East End Community Foundation

Delancey is delighted to have been the sponsor of the 2016 East End Community Foundation Tea Dance, which was held on 7th April at George Green’s School on the Isle of Dogs.
The annual tea dance forms part of a series of activities run in partnership with the Docklands 50+ forum – an umbrella group of clubs coordinated by local grant-making charity East End Community Foundation (EECF), who provide services to elderly people in the Tower Hamlets area. The aim of the tea dance is to bring together isolated elderly local residents to give them the opportunity to socialise and enjoy an afternoon of tea, cake and dancing.

Tracey Walsh, Chief Executive of East End Community Foundation, said:
“The beauty of the tea dance is that it is a very simple idea, to bring together local elderly people and volunteers from local businesses, but it has such an impact on all those involved. Year on year I am delighted to hear from local elders how much they enjoy meeting people at the tea dance and the chance to get out of the house and put on their dancing shoes for an afternoon. We are delighted that the project still meets needs in the local community ten years after launch and would like to thank this year’s sponsor, Delancey, for helping to make the event a success.”
