Remembrance Day at Sunderland Care and Support

Remembrance Day marks an important time for reflection and contemplation and for staff and customers at Farmborough Court, Barry Dixon made a special impact with his bugle playing.

Barry Dixon who joined SCAS as a support worker in 2009 at Farmborough Court, had served in the army since 2005, as he joined the army at the age of 16 and was part of the bugle platoon.

In April this year, Barry developed coronavirus which caused problems in his breathing being and affected his bugle playing, but he persisted and kept practising. His dedication paid off when on Remembrance Sunday, he played “The Last Post” from beginning to end in the car park at Farmborough Court and with all of windows open, the sound of the bugle could be heard throughout the building.

It was an emotional time for customers and staff alike, encouraging conversations surrounding Remembrance and the importance it. So we’d like to congratulate Barry, not only for your own personal achievement but the pleasure and memories it brought to the customers and staff of the service.
