A Romford couple boogied their way to £400 for St Francis Hospice.
Karen and Clive Rawlings opened their garden for a vintage party, with guests jiving to 1940s classics and drinking tea from period-piece china.
The charity is close to Karen’s heart as her late husband attended its day therapy unit, and was cared for at home by the hospice nurses at the end of his life.
“Our biggest stress in putting on the event was the weather but it was kind to us so we had a great day thanks to the generosity of family and friends,” said Karen, of Mashiters Walk.
