“Dance and Dine” for senior citizens in Brentwood
Baker Labels has contributed to funding the “Dance and Dine” for senior citizens in Brentwood. Organised by Brentwood Borough Council, the project has been designed to improve older people’s physical fitness and emotional wellbeing.
We joined one of the groups at The Gables in Warley for an hour of gentle but enthusiastic dancing. The session was choreographed by Emma from the Dance Network Association and was perfectly tailored to encourage gentle movement, interaction with others and to stimulate the brain with some slightly more complicated hand and arm movements. The session finished with a very welcome lunch of fish and chips.
“The residents seemed really happy and engaged, and they have all said they would like to come along to the next one. A big thank you to Brentwood Rotary Club and Bakers Labels for your financial support. The sessions simply wouldn’t happen without you.” Lucy Gill, Community, Leisure and Wellbeing Officer at Brentwood Borough Council
