On Thursday 8th December, Lisieux Trust held their annual Christmas Dinner and Dance at the Hollyfields Centre. Lisieux Trust is a Birmingham based charity, supporting disabled people in the community by offering them support from a disability and resource information centre, as well as providing safe and secure accommodation for adults with learning difficulties.
The annual Dinner and Dance gives the residents of the Lisieux Trust houses the opportunity to get together, and celebrate with their family and friends. It was an absolute honour to be invited along to document the evening for them all, and I was made to feel incredibly welcome by all of the staff, residents, and their families.
The night consisted of a lovely festive three course meal followed by a Strictly Come Dancing inspired Tango competition, a raffle, and a night full of dancing! The photographs I took on the night (below) show just how much fun was had by all! It was so wonderful to be a part of the Lisieux Trust's special event; to capture special moments between family and friends and to contribute a small amount of my time to their evening, so that they can keep the moments and memories forever.
