To put your mind at rest: this won’t mean we’re changing the way we use your personal information. To help make it easier for you to find out what we do, we’ve created a new “Privacy Notice”. This includes details about your rights and the legal grounds we rely on to hold your data.
On Friday 15th December, Old Oak’s Community Centre and Housing teams joined together to throw a special Christmas event for our customers aged 60 and over.
A mix of local tenants, and other residents, attended this special Christmas Big Tea, built on the success of previous Big Tea events at the Centre, that we’ve held regularly for the past two years.
As well as enjoying sandwiches, a wide range of cakes, tea, coffee and mulled wine, we held a festive themed quiz, a prize raffle, and our guests were treated to a return visit by the very popular singer Dean Gee.
Dean and staff encouraged lots of dancing, with Dean’s mix of Christmas tunes and “Brat Pack” type songs.
One lady told us as she left that she’d had a fantastic time at what was her first Big Tea, and that she’d definitely be back for future events.
Thanks to all our staff and volunteers who really pulled out all the stops to make this an event our older residents clearly very much enjoyed!
