Ukulele Sunshine Band entertains staff and patients at Peace Hospice Care

First published in News by

The Ukulele Sunshine Band strummed up smiles in the Starlight Lounge at Peace Hospice Care when they entertained patients, staff, volunteers and visitors.

Their repertoire of well-known songs proved to be a popular addition to the afternoon last Tuesday and was welcomed with warm applause from the audience.

Organised by Senior Healthcare Assistant, Rose Tallon, the band members enjoyed the opportunity to strum and sing.

Following their performance they presented a cheque for £30 to the charity and tucked into tea and cake.

Band member Jim O’Connor said: "We do get a great deal of satisfaction from playing ukulele and entertaining in the community."

For Brian Widdowson, Day Care patient Brian Widdowson said the entertainment provided a "boost to his well-being".

He added: "I was recording the music to share with my wife later. She loves ukulele. I do too. It really was so good to sit back and hear the songs and join in."

One of these good people is my neighbour (shall remain nameless) and we often have the pleasure of hearing the practice sessions through the wall. My 6 year old now talks of learning to play the ukulele too.

Keep up the good work, its great to see that you are putting smiles on faces with your talent too, especially at a place very dear to my heart.
