AN Elvis fan with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties per­formed some of the singer’s hits at a spe­cial con­cert.

An­drea Brown, who is a res­i­dent at Park­lands care home on Park Lane, Poyn­ton, dressed like the leg­endary per­former at the con­cert at Poyn­ton Acous­tic Lounge.

The 44-year-old or­gan­ised the con­cert her­self in a bid to thank res­i­dents and staff at the care home who have sup­ported her since she ar­rived.

An­drea also used the con­cert to raise money for the care home’s Res­i­dent Com­fort Fund.

Com­bin­ing the money taken from the gig and ran a raf­fle on the night with prize do­nated by lo­cal busi­nesses An­drea raised £235 for the res­i­dents of Park­lands.

Chris Machin, home man­ager at Park­lands, said: “An­drea has been re­ally en­joy­ing life at Park­lands and so wanted to do some­thing spe­cial for our res­i­dents and staff, with whom she’s be­come great friends. She has learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties and put a huge amount of ef­fort into the per­for­mance and all the fundrais­ing around it.

“It was a great night and a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment. She should be ex­tremely proud.”
