The patients, visitors and staff were able to sing along to tunes from the 50’s and 60’s, including rock number “All shook up “ and ballad “ Can’t Help falling in Love with you “ by Elvis. There was even a little “country” with John Denver’s “ Country Roads”.

Volunteering and Befriending  Involvement team member Beverley Taylor  was the star guest singing “ Amazing Grace “. The performance was well received and the group plan to visit more wards in the Trust in the near future with the hope of keeping the patients and staff “Rocking !
