Abney Court celebrates Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday with nationwide sing-along

Home news

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

Abney Court is inviting people in Cheadle to join them on Monday 20th March, from 2.00pm, to strike a chord for the forces’ sweetheart’s milestone birthday.

Residents and the team 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.

The British Legion will join the team and residents for the celebration, and entertainment will be provided by welsh singer, Sioned Roberts who will perform a selection of hits taking everyone on a ‘trip down memory lane’. The newly appointed head chef, Steve Dale, will also be preparing a 1940s-inspired afternoon tea for guests to enjoy.

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

Tracey Mitchell, home manager at Abney Court, 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 Cheadle for this special occasion.”
