Sunderland opera singers hit the right notes while entertaining a specially invited crowd to an exclusive one-off show.

Members of Sunderland Amateur Operatic Society took the audience at Millfield and Deptford Community Association on a trip down memory lane as part of a Good Old Days style music hall show. 

The lively performance was a treat for carers and customers of Bluebird Care in Sunderland, who laid on the free trip to the show.  Award-winning Bluebird Care look after people across Sunderland, helping them to continue to live independently in their homes thanks to bespoke care packages.

Leigh Finn of Bluebird Care said:

We build up long term relationships with people in our care and from time to time we like to repay their faith in us with accompanied trips out.
In the past we have taken them on trips to the Empire Theatre and this time we thought a sing-a-long musical show would be perfect. The performances were all excellent and everyone had a fantastic time.”

The afternoon show featured a selection of old favourite music hall tunes such as We’ll Meet Again and White Cliffs of Dover as well as a medley of old North East songs like Lambton Worm and When The Boat Comes In.

Bluebird Care customer, Daniel Crewe said: “We had a lovely afternoon – it was a real treat.”

Bluebird Care (Sunderland), who are based at The Place in Sunderland, this month won two awards at the Echo Best of Health Awards.

Great-grandmother and Bluebird Care employee, Jean Metcalf won Carer of the Year while all the staff celebrated collecting the Community Team of the Year honour.
