Kenilworth Grange celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

March 16th 2017

Kenilworth Grangen is inviting the community to join a nationwide sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday.

Kenilworth Grange is inviting people in Kenilworth to join them on Monday 20th March from 3pm, to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

As part of the celebrations, the team has invited pupils and staff from Kenilworth School and Sixth form. The students will join in on the sing-along and discuss music from different generations with the residents.

Residents and the team at the care home will be ensuring visitors are pitch perfect for the rendition of the popular war-time song “We’ll Meet Again”, with lyrics available and tasty treats on hand for all.

Kenilworth Grange will be joined by Care UK care homes across the country for the nationwide sing-along to celebrate this special occasion.

Sheridan Farish, home manager at Kenilworth Grange, commented: “We are all looking forward to taking a walk down memory lane and having a good sing-along to celebrate Vera Lynn’s milestone birthday. Singing can be a powerful reminiscence activity, and Vera Lynn has written a number of iconic songs that many residents are likely to have grown up listening to.

“Even when memories become particularly hard to remember, often music can still be recalled, so a group sing-along can often be very calming for those living with dementia, and can encourage them to talk about memories from their childhood.

“We are thrilled to be joining Care UK care homes across the country and look forward to welcoming the people of Kenilworth for this special occasion.”
