Dundee Retirees Host Charity Disco
Posted on Wednesday, Aug 7th, 2019
TENANTS at a Dundee retirement housing development have put on their dancing shoes to raise money for a worthwhile cause.
An organising committee comprised of tenants from Bield’s Rannoch Court hosted a disco for their neighbours to enjoy – with all proceeds donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
The fundraising team was headed up Eddie McNeil, a tenant at the development, and raised a total of £110.
Eddie McNeil (66) said: “I took it upon myself to organise the charity disco as I thought it would be good for the residents to use their creativity and initiative to organise something instead of it always being done by the staff.
“I donate to Macmillan charity every month but I wanted to contribute more towards the cause and I thought the best way to show that support was as a group.
“Everyone who attended the disco had a great time, classic music from the 1940’s to the 1970’s was played. It was really nice getting all of residents together and the music made us reminisce about our fond memories of the past”.
Tenants have planned another coffee morning where proceeds will be given to Tayside Macmillan Cancer Support along with the money raised by the disco.
Rannoch Court development offers one and two bedroom properties ideal for people aged 60 and over who wish to retain their independence but want to leave the worries of repairs and looking after the garden to someone else.
Bield has been providing high quality housing and related services in Scotland for more than 40 years, investing, changing and innovating its services and operations to address the needs of the next generation of older people.
