When a musical icon like Dame Vera Lynn turns 100, a simple ‘happy birthday’ just won’t do. That’s why Care UK are organising sing-a-long events in March, Dame Vera’s birthday, and inviting local choirs, schools and members of the local community for a group rendition of her wartime classic, ‘We’ll Meet Again’.
As well as being a fitting tribute to the forces’ sweetheart, remembered with great fondness by many of a certain generation, singing has proven benefits for older people – particularly as a reminiscence activity for those living with dementia.
So whether you can hold a tune or your voice most certainly can’t hold a candle to our Vera’s, we’d love you to be a part of this event and help our residents relive the fabulous 40s while sending many happy returns to an old favourite.
We look forward to seeing you there!
