Andrea says thanks with special Elvis concert for care home pals
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.”
