Jersey Boys a hit with residents

Residents from Sahara Lodge and Gardens have recently enjoyed the hit West-End show Jersey Boys during a trip to Piccadilly Theatre.

The glitzy stage performance, which follows the story of famous 50s boppers Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, was a big hit with the service users, who thoroughly enjoyed their day out in Central London’s theatre district.

Those who attended the show enjoyed singing along to Valli’s hits including Sherry, Walk Like a Man and Big Girls.

Janette Neal, Care Manager at Sahara Lodge and Gardens, said: “All of the service users thoroughly enjoyed their day out in the West-End and came back singing all their favourite songs from the show.

“Going out to the theatre is a real highlight for our residents and they are always asking us what they can go and see next.”

Sahara Care has a long tradition of encouraging its residents to attend cultural events and our group’s charity the Sahara Care Charitable has supported a number of art venues and groups, including a recent donation of £50,000 to the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

Sharon Kaur, Managing Director at Sahara Care added: “Art and drama plays a really important role in our service users lives and provides a therapeutic release for many of our residents. I am delighted that so many of our services users went to the West-End to see this show and more importantly enjoyed it.”
