There were belly dancers, classic cars and more at a cherished Letchworth social centre’s open day at the weekend.
The Howard Garden Social and Day Care Centre, off Norton Way South, opened its doors for the fundraising day on Saturday.
Organiser Liz Allen told the Comet: “It was a really good fun day – the classic cars were a good call.
“We managed to raise £512 on the day, with more through the week. Loads of people came along to support us, there must have been more than 100.
“The best thing was all the different entertainment we had – with belly dancers, singers and other local talent there.
