D-Day Mini Concert For St Benedicts Residents

Residents at a specialist dementia care home in Glastonbury have been enjoying a sing-along at a mini concert which has taken place at their home to mark the anniversary of the D-Day Landings.

The courtyard garden at St Benedict’s rang out with familiar wartime favourites sung by the D-Day Dollies including songs from the Andrews Sisters, Judy Garland, and Dame Vera Lynn, and residents were only too keen to join in.

William Merivale, assistant operations manager for St Benedict’s Nursing Home, said: “Many of our residents are living with dementia, but they have no problem recalling the words to the songs of their youth.

“The visit by the D-Day Dollies, which included some brilliant choreographed routines, was a huge hit and a lovely way to pay our respects in remembering the sacrifices made by those involved in the D-Day landings.”

The concert at St Benedict’s is part of a busy and varied programme of activities organised by the home for the benefit of residents. White Care Group also runs St Cecilia Care Home in Shepton Mallet and The Rectory in Taunton.
