BAND SUR­PRISE FOR RES­I­DENTS

Hus­band and wife John and Hilda, clients of Rad­field Home Care Derby, Ash­bourne and South Der­byshire, re­ceived a spe­cial sur­prise when, through a live video stream, owner and di­rec­tor Sam Adie or­gan­ised for a lo­cal band to play their favourite song Delilah to them­from the com­fort of their own liv­ing room.

Ninety-nine and 96 years young re­spec­tively, Hilda and John have been at Rad­field since March 2020 and staff soon dis­cov­ered their love of lis­ten­ing to mu­sic.

Sam said: ‘They are such a won­der­ful cou­ple. The days are long for them dur­ing the lock­down as they’re not see­ing their loved ones. My hus­band Jon, co-di­rec­tor of Rad­field, has played in a lo­cal band known as Muck­Tudge (pic­tured) for years and it was their sug­ges­tion that they would play live to them, in­de­pen­dently from their own liv­ing rooms.’

After, John said, ‘They’re good! They should go for the Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test next year!’, ‘I think they are won­der­ful, ab­so­lutely won­der­ful’ added Hilda.
