Diamond Life As Care Home Ladies Relax To Sweet Sounds At Country Estate

Residents from a dedicated dementia care home had a taste of luxury when they enjoyed afternoon tea in the grounds of a country estate complete with a choir performance just for them.

A party of eight ladies from Colten Care’s Linden House in Lymington wore summer dresses and straw sun hats for the trip to historic Beaulieu in the New Forest.

Over blueberry pie and fruit salad, they listened to the sixteen-strong Diamond Divas sing a selection of light music and songs from the shows interspersed with Beatles and Abba favourites.

Linden House resident Joan Porrett said: “We had such a lovely afternoon and we thank everyone involved for making it happen.”

The visit took place close to an estate cottage and was arranged through personal contacts of Natasha Nilsen, a member of Linden House’s Companionship team.

In return for their exclusive performance, the Divas, based in Highcliffe, Dorset, collected a donation of £70 towards their charity Macmillan Caring Locally.

The money adds to a grand total of more than £55,000 raised for Macmillan through choir shows over the past twelve years.

Chris Dimmick, Companionship Team Leader at Linden House, said: “The residents had a lovely time. They really enjoyed it.”
