Dressing up to go to the ball
By Andrew Oswin
I attended the Unforgetaball 2019 at the Hornby Working Men’s Club.
It is for families and friends of people with intellectual disabilities. It is about networking with other families and friends, having fun, dancing, singing, and having fun.
Everyone all got dressed up all in their finery and had many photo opportunities.
We welcomed back a band called, ‘Girl From Mars’, who once again played and sang for us at the ball.
I had many dances with a number of lovely ladies and I got to dance to I Want To Break Free, Updown Funky Monkey, Tonight Is Going To Be A Good Night and one of my favourite songs Mamma Mia.
A light supper got provided and the caterers brought the food out to the tables so that everyone could help themselves.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the organisers Linda Te Kaat and Tania Grose for organising the Unforgetaball once again, which is one of the highlights for the year, as well as the decorators and photographers, the Hornby Working Men’s Club Sports Hall Staff for hiring the venue, the band Girl From Mars and a very special thank to everyone who attended.
I really enjoyed it!
