West Ham legend Tony Cottee watches Upminster care staff put on Christmas show
A West Ham legend joined residents at an Upminster care home to watch staff put on a cracker of a Christmas show.
Ex-striker Tony Cottee was the surprise guest at the Little Gaynes Rest Home, Corbets Tey Road, event last week.
Staff sang carols and then dressed as characters, including elves, and residents enjoyed a special buffet at the event.
Mayor of Havering Cllr Lynden Thorpe was also in attendance, for the first event of its kind held at Little Gaynes.
Manager Pat Cogley said: “The staff were fantastic and everyone enjoyed the event.
