Worcester Editorial 9th Jul, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

ST RICHARD’S Hospice got into the Bollywood spirit to help raise more than £6,000 for the charity.

The Wildwood Drive hospice held its first midsummer Bollywood bash, as part of their 30th anniversary celebrations, at the Tree Tops Pavilion in West Midlands Safari Park and collected £6,500.

About 150 guests were welcome by dhol players and enjoyed an authentic three course Indian banquet, music and dancing.

Rachel Jones, fund-raising manager, said: “It was fantastic to host such a different event and we were amazed that guests embraced the themes and really dressed to impress, the outfits and colours were absolutely fabulous.

“We enjoyed a spectacular Indian Banquet and when it was time to try out the Bollywood dancing, under guidance of Hina and Co, the dance floor was packed.

“A truly memorable evening was had by all.”

Jodi Brandwood, from Worcester,  won best dressed woman and Derek Case, from Redditch, best dressed man at the event.
