Wetherby in Support of the Elderly (WiSE) had glittered-up Dancing Queens galore at its recent fundraising event which aimed to make ‘money, money, money’ to help isolated, older people across the district.
ABBA tribute duo ‘Angel Eyes’, which features the two women from renowned group Planet Abba, performed the Swedish pop sensations’ classic hits including ‘Waterloo’, ‘Dancing Queen’ and ‘Mamma Mia’.
WiSE Activities Coordinator, Debbie, organised the event. She said: “We had such a brilliant night with loads of glitz and glamour! ABBA is loved by young and old, so we knew this would be a popular event.
“Thank you to everyone who supported the charity by coming along. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for over 60s, but we can only carry out that work by people supporting fundraising events like this one.”
The event raised £800 which will go towards helping isolated, older people in Wetherby and its surrounding villages.
WISE is a registered charity organisation partially funded by Leeds City Council (LCC). Its aim is to improve the quality of life for the over 60s by providing community-based activities, information, help and support.
