The Care UK team at Foxbridge House opened the doors to the care home on Sevenoaks Road for a performance by cockney entertainer, Mickie Driver, who donned his pearly king costume to perform some top East End hits.

Residents were also tempted with a delicious selection of traditional cockney seafood throughout the afternoon, before dancing the night away along to Chas & Dave’s biggest hits.

Home manager at Foxbridge House, Carol McCormack, said: “We were thrilled to welcome Mickie Driver to the home for what was a memorable afternoon at Foxbridge House.

“The cockney performance was a big hit with the residents, and for many of those living with dementia it proved to be an effective reminiscence activity.”
