A celebration of music brought a festive twist to a Christmas lunch for one Ely charity thanks to the Rocking Ukuleles.
The Ely and District Parkinson’s Disease Support Group were treated to a range of seasonal and favourite tunes at their December meeting, alongside a buffet lunch and draw.
It was also a special occasion for John Bassett, who after four years hung up his ukulele and retired.
The support group agreed the afternoon had been a huge success and thanked all those speakers who had helped to deliver a varied and interesting programme in 2018.
They meet on the third Tuesday of every month at The Bell Holt Meeting Room on Lisle Lane, 2.30pm until 4.30pm.
