Poles Lead Crawley Parish in Dance

Polish Dancers in Crawley Parish Hall
The Crawley Parish came together one Sunday in October in the Friary Hall in Crawley town centre for a charity event in aid of Friends Of The Lisiecki Homes In Poland. The Hall was packed with parishioners from all the churches in the Parish.

Friends Of The Lisiecki Homes In Poland is a small charity helping children from poor and underprivileged families in Poland. The afternoon was introduced by their President, Princess Renata Sapieha, who explained to how the charity came to be founded by her family, and introduced the Karolinka Dance Company, who held us spellbound with their lively routines, and passionate performances of authentic traditional Polish dances and folk songs!

Afterwards, while the raffle was being drawn, they enjoyed a welcome cup of tea, with delicious Polish chocolate cake. Even if no one won a prize they did not need to go home empty-handed, as they were able to buy the Karolinka CD of Polish Folk Songs.
