MEMBERS of Spalding District Age UK have enjoyed tuneful strolls down memory lane thanks to musician Alan Curtis.

Spalding’s N&P branch has paid for four visits by the musician.

The Spalding District branch of Age UK general manager, Liz Walmsley, said: “Our members really look forward to listening to Alan when he comes in to play and sing for them. As Alan plays such old songs, for many of the members it is great for evoking fond memories.

“It brings our members fun and entertainment, something many of them can’t get out to enjoy elsewhere.

“We’re very grateful to N&P for covering the cost of Alan’s time with us – I know that our members see it as a real treat.”

Spalding N&P branch manager Kelly Cross said: “When Liz said that they would love some support with the cost of a musician, it sounded like a lovely idea. As a mutual building society, we feel it’s important to support charities such as this.”

Spalding District Age UK has 74 members aged from 60 to more than 100 who attend The Meadows for day care. Many have suffered heart attacks or strokes or are suffering from dementia.

As well as playing music, Alan encourages those who can do so to get up and dance.
