Golden Oldies celebrate Golden Hits

Friends and family have joined residents at a nursing home in Bicton for an evening of entertainment from star performer, singer Paulo Pinto.

The residents were quite taken with Paulo, taking a turn on the dance floor with the singer and some even enjoyed being personally serenaded.

After the performance residents dined with their guests, with tea and homemade cakes to finish.
