The Ivanhoe Homes is delighted to invite residents to a Thursday evening each month at 6.30pm where drinks, nibbles and music are provided in the community room. It is a great opportunity to meet some new friends and have a good sing along.
The Next Music Night is on Thursday 28th February
We are very fortunate to have ‘The Green Arrows’, namely Deb, Geoff and John, who visit each month and entertain us with their music and a bit of comedy thrown in for good measure. They have been doing so for over eight years and make a real difference to the lives of the residents, partners and carers who are going through some difficult times.
24th January Music Night
The first of our 2019 Music Nights saw the biggest attendance we have had, it was full house with 26 in attendance. It was lovely seeing our dedicated trio of musicians all geared up and excited for another year, while residents were lining up at the door! Special mention was for Michael (& Debbie Welsh) who was a patient/resident/carer at Ryder some 7 months ago, came for the night to ‘jam’ on ‘snare drum’. He looked fabulous, fighting fit, with a great mop of hair, and having introduced him to the current residents was a great source of inspiration, faith & hope for residents. Also we were extremely pleased to see Marty back in fine form, so much so two lady patients could not resist getting up to dance, which bought much applause, smiles & laughter all round. So it was another successful fun night! Some residents comments: Excellent, fabulous, uplifting of spirits, brilliant & many thank you (s) with one couple who mentioned they rushed home from their dinner so they could join in on our night, is a lovely compliment.
