Care firm throws free tea party for elderly

A TEA party for about 100 old folk was held at the d:two centre in Henley

A TEA party for about 100 old folk was held at the d:two centre in Henley on Sunday to mark the Queen’s official 90th birthday.

The event was organised by home care services provider Home Instead and the Henley Business Partnership for the third year running.

Many of the elderly guests were driven to the venue in Upper Market Place and delivered home again afterwards.

Strada in Henley donated a £150 voucher for a raffle and drinks for the party were sponsored by Brakspear.

The party was officially opened by Henley Mayor Julian Brookes. Kitty Mazinsky sang to the visitors, including a rendition of the National Anthem, as the guests were served tea and cake.



Paul Westgarth, director of Home Instead and a director of the Partnership, said: “This is the third party we have run for the Queen’s birthday.

“It’s free for the elderly population of Henley and the surrounding area.

“There is a lot going on in Henley at this time of year but none is really open or accessible to the older generation, so we felt it made sense to do something free for them.”
