An afternoon of ‘toe-tapping’ tunes was enjoyed by people at a Portishead care home to raise money for a worthy cause.
Norewood Lodge Care Home hosted a charity concert by Ukebox last month to raise much-needed cash for Festival Medical Services.
The Clevedon-based band had people singing along at the care home as they rolled back the years and performed a long list of popular songs from decades gone by.
A care home spokesman said it was a memorable occasion for its residents.
They added: “The band performed a variety of toe-tapping music including The Everly Brothers tunes.
“Everyone joined in with singing and we all had a great afternoon.
“It was even more special as one of the band members, Shelia Shute, was given a banjolele by one of Norewood Lodge’s residents, Doreen Want, several years ago and Shelia has been playing the instrument ever since.”
