JDA Fundraising Dinner and Cabaret

On Tuesday 7th November the JDA hosted 253 people at the Sheraton Grand London for the charity’s “Support for Life” cabaret dinner. Guests were entertained by the acclaimed musical comedy act, Fascinating Aida and wowed by mind reading duo, DNA. The dinner, hosted every other year, is our biggest fundraiser and this year we raised an unprecedented amount towards the growth of the organisation and huge roll out of support services in care homes across the community. Thank you to everyone who came and supported us.
