The Brooke Weston jazz band entertained staff and patients at Lakelands Day Care Hospice recently. The patients dressed up and took part in a sweepstake to celebrate Ladies Day at Ascot and the band added to the ambience by providing the music.
Nurse manager, Cathy Langtree said: 'We've had lots of prizes, lots of entertainment this morning and the jazz band have come in to provide the entertainment for the afternoon. The patients and staff here are really enjoying the day.'
Teacher Mr Sammy said: 'This was a great opportunity for our students to make a contribution to a local community event and it also gave our band, and vocalist, Katie Parker, the chance to practice some of the songs featured in the Michael Jackson showcase.'
