Local business groups supporting charities fabulous disco event at Wanstead Golf Club


It was Party Time  – 1980s style at Wanstead Golf Club as part of a planned initiative to raise money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) charity.

Supported by Wanstead Business Network (WBN) where all members with either a service or product to offer, enthusiastically gave of their time and products to ensure this event would be memorable, successful and fantastic.  In addition, a £500 donation was given from Chigwell Business Group (CBG) and Epping Forest Business Group (EFBG) were also involved.

Wanstead Golf Club was the perfect venue for the event and they too, were very supportive, especially as WBN are based from their beautiful and highly-respected club.

“So far, funds raised are in excess of £2,400 and more donations are still coming through.”

As DJ Ray worked his magic and Keith Gold supported with extra donations raised through photographs being produced on the night… the floor bounced as everyone reminisced their disco moves as if transported back in time. Michael Jackson, Status Quo, Queen, Abba – everyone knew the words and sung until hoarse. Spritely and energetic throughout the evening, although limping out with a few aching muscles at the end – everyone was still smiling, laughing and singing under their breath… Then lighting up Facebook with photographs from the event to keep the momentum going…

A representative from CRY attended the event and spoke briefly about the charity and how their work through screenings conducted either at St. George’s Hospital or via their mobile vans.  Everybody present was absolutely aware of the event’s purpose and why support is needed to help save lives and to support bereaved families.
