Our springtime programme of concerts has been wonderfully well received at 25 care homes the length and breadth of the country, entertaining a total audience or nearly 1,200 people.
Staged by Mickie Driver and performed by Victoria Yellop, Lloyd Ellery, Sue Kennett, Jackie Simmonds, Janet Beale and Mickie himself, the shows were generally agreed to be better than ever.
The NFA was founded to provide ‘comfort, cheer and entertainment’ to sick and wounded service veterans so these concerts, together with those organised by Libby Stuart in Scotland, are an essential part of our programme of activities.
We would like to thanks all the homes for the very warm welcome given to the NFA and to the artistes.
“Can I say a massive thank you for a fantastic show. Our tenants were absolutely thrilled and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.” Kimberley Linehan, St Georges Court Portsmouth
