Soloist Lucia Benjafield accompanied by her husband Mike

Singer and raffle

May 2017

The last meeting of the Ringwood & Fordingbridge Club for the Blind was held on 11 May at the usual venue, Greyfriars Activities Centre in Ringwood. On this occasion we were entertained by the accomplished soloist, Lucia Benjafield, accompanied on the keyboard by her husband, Mike. Lucia delighted the audience with a wide selection of popular songs from the '40s onwards and endeared herself to the listeners by moving amongst them and encouraging them to participate by 'playing' instruments she provided or simply clapping or tapping feet in time with the music. Overall, this proved a riveting and memorable performance which, we hope, will be repeated when Lucia is invited back in the future! The concert was followed by the usual tea prepared by volunteers and a raffle.
