Sidcup care home residents will be able to enjoy the benefits of live music thanks to a concert organised by charity Music in Hospitals.

Bupa, in Hatherley Road, will welcome The Baker Boys next Thursday (September 6) from 2pm.

Home manager Tracey Cheeseman said: “Music is such a huge part of everyday life but a live performance really is very special. We love listening to music as it brings everyone together, lifts spirits and certainly gets toes tapping.

“Residents who may normally struggle with memories, such as those with dementia, suddenly find themselves recalling words and songs, so we know this performance will be a real treat.”

If you would like to attend call 0845 600 4622.
