To celebrate the arrival of its new piano, Rand Aid’s Thornhill Manor retirement village held a soirée on May 24. The event was organised by the village’s entertainment committee and was thoroughly enjoyed by over 80 residents. Resident Gretha Pecoraro played a selection of classical music, golden oldies and contemporary pieces, while fellow villagers sat enthralled, taking in the music and remembering days gone by with smiles of joy. Another resident, Brian Burls, then lightened the mood when he led a sing-along to old favourites. His wife Dawn happily assisted with the overhead projector so residents could follow the word to each song. Pictured are Gretha and Brian.
