Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The Lan­de­mer cel­e­bra­tions started early at David Walker Care Home with a live per­for­mance from Mu­sic in Hos­pi­tals’ mu­si­cians,‘Muckle Ado’on Thurs­day af­ter­noon.

Res­i­dents were treated to an hour of well known Scot­tish favourites, some coun­try and west­ern songs and many en­joyed the op­por­tu­nity to sing along and take part in the mu­sic mak­ing.

The highly in­clu­sive per­for­mance was made pos­si­ble thanks to sup­port from the Lan­de­mer Com­mit­tee who have funded live con­certs from Mu­sic in Hos­pi­tals for res­i­dents of lo­cal care set­tings over the past four years.

Florence Burke, of Mu­sic in Hos­pi­tals Scot­land, was de­lighted with the event and said:“We are hugely proud to be in­volved in this year’s Lan­de­mer cel­e­bra­tions to pro­vide live mu­sic for the res­i­dents and staff at David Walker House.

“Our many thanks go to the Lan­de­mer Com­mit­tee for their on­go­ing sup­port of our mu­si­cians’per­for­mances, en­abling us to help bring the Lan­de­mer party to peo­ple in care across Ruther­glen.”

The Lan­de­mer Com­mit­tee con­tin­ues to bring the fes­tiv­i­ties to care homes and older peo­ple who may be un­able to at­tend the June 3 gala.

The Lan­de­mer Queen elect and two of the ladies in wait­ing also went along to the event to have their pic­tures taken with some of the peo­ple at the care home, whilst staff laid on af­ter­noon tea with an ex­cel­lent choice of cakes and pan­cakes.

We’re proud to be in­volved in Lan­de­mer
