SAX Recital...

Jacqui visited again this afternoon to play her sax for the residents - she issued everyone with percussion instruments in case anyone wanted to accompany her (they didnt!) but she also provided song sheets for those who wanted to join in with the singing could do so (they did!)

a lovely afternoon, and we are looking forward to seeing jacqui again soon.

a walk up Kilimanjiro with Shelagh!

we had an interesting talk this morning by Shelagh who came to mount ephraim house. she shared her story of a sponsored climb to the summit of kilimanjiro, raising over £4,000 for marie curie cancer research charity.

shelagh brought her walking boots, poles and hat which she said were the essential items which helped her reach her goal and so we asked her to pose for our album in full regalia!

she will be a regular visitor we hope as she has many more adventures to tell us about...
