Nancy May gives another Care Home Concert
Our wonderful regular volunteer, Nancy May, once again supporting care homes when they need it the most.
We’re used to our amazing community granting one wish at a time here at FaNs HQ via the Wishing Washing Line, but when a whole care home makes the same wish, well, who are we to say no? So huge thanks again to Nancy May for dropping everything and making it to Woodlands for Ladies for an afternoon of live music and laughter, despite the weather and a broken down car!
"I absolutely love singing live to care home residents", said Nancy. "Whether its inside in the warm, or outside in the rain. Its such a change for both them and me, and it makes me feel so incredibly happy to see them so enthralled, and engaging with their favourite songs and music"
We all love you here at FaNs HQ, and we’re looking forward to seeing you in a local care home again soon! #makeeverymomentcount
