At the Welcome Dance on Wednesday 19th April we were treated to the amazing voice of Sharni who was appearing for the first time with the Welcome Group.

welcome IMG 6464She is a lovely lady and gave us a great show singing big songs from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and all the way up to the very latest songs. We look forward to seeing her back. Our second artist was one of Welcome’s favourite male singers Nick Gold with his silky smooth voice. He had us all up dancing and enjoying ourselves. welcome IMG 6545After the first set of music, we had a break to enjoy the fabulous Mariano’s chicken & chips and the best raffle on Camposol with many great prizes. The profits from these raffles are donated to charities and good causes in the Camposol area and a cheque was presented to MABS to cover the first quarter costs of their Help Line. MABS is a cancer charity dedicated to helping individuals and families deal with the trauma of this horrible disease. They do a great job providing transport, translators and equipment among many other services. If you are suffering from this disease or just want more information call the Help Line on 620 422 410

The next Welcome Meeting will be held at 2pm on Saturday 10th June at Mariano’s, Camposol A where you will be able to purchase tickets for all upcoming events and trips and also food tickets where applicable.
