The staff at a Brooke care home are stepping back in time to the 1970s for Red Nose Day.

A 24 hour 'Abba-thon' will take place on Friday at Brooke House involving senior support worker Sue Manning, home manager Hayley Hirst and activities coordinator Donna Horne.

Starting at 3pm on Friday, the three Dancing Queens will be dancing their way through to Saturday, supported by rolling Abba tracks and disco lights.

Mrs Hirst said: 'We all like Abba and a lot of our residents do as well. They always enjoy it when our visiting entertainer Felicity Moore sings Abba songs.'

She is calling on residents' families and villagers to pop along on the day to sponsor their efforts.
