Grand Opening

Andrew Castle, one of the stars of BBC TV’s smash-hit Saturday night show, Strictly Come Dancing, was the special guest for a charity event in Flintshire.
GMTV host and former British number one tennis player Andrew Castle charmed everyone at Warrendale Cottage Residential Care Home in Old Warren, Broughton as he helped to make the occasion a day to remember.

Andrew took part in an exhibition mixed doubles match, was the master of ceremonies in a fundraising auction and even danced with a number of lucky residents.

The deputy manager at Warrendale, Sarah Kirby, said they were delighted with the success of the day.

It was organised to mark the official opening of an extension at the home, featuring eight more en-suite bedrooms and a large concert room.

“Everyone was thrilled to meet Andrew, he was very down-to-earth and nice to speak to,” said Sarah.

Among the other activities taking place during the day, the honour of cutting a delicious celebratory cake went to Violet Willacey, the resident who has been at the home the longest.

Sarah said that the fundraising had gone extremely well, with more than £3,500 being raised for Breast Cancer UK.

She thanked everyone who had helped to make the event such a success.

Andrew Castle, a GMTV presenter since 2000, has been winning rave reviews from the public for his performances in Strictly Come Dancing.
