Interactive video lesson plan for: Gumtree ad gets 80 musicians to jam with 95 year old in care home

Activity overview:

Musicians have come forward to jam with a 95-year-old pianist after a nationwide appeal was made on Gumtree to find him some new bandmates. The festive wish was granted for ex jazz player, Edward Hardy, when more than 80 musicians from across the UK replied to the heart-warming advert. Amazingly, despite now suffering from dementia, the talented war veteran has still retained his piano playing abilities. The pensioner wanted to start a new band because he felt so lonely after being separated from his wife for 75 years, Betty, 91, due to moving into a care home in Wookey, Somerset.
