Step back in time at party

Have your say

A CHARITY hopes the Swinging 60s will help raise cash in South Yorkshire to mark an anniversary.

The British Heart Foundation is asking people across South Yorkshire to put on their party shoes, brush up their beehives and join its 50th birthday celebrations in July.

The cardiac charity, which was founded in July 1961, is asking locals to host a 1960s inspired party or celebratory event.

And to help get people into the spirit the British Heart Foundation has created a special party page full of retro music, food, fancy dress and fundraising ideas.

Lauren Mallinson, South Yorkshire fundraising and volunteer manager, said: “We hope as many people as possible will help us celebrate this milestone with fun-filled fundraising.”
