There will be festive music in the air at Sanctuary Care homes when youngsters perform nativity plays and Christmas music for residents.
Tomorrow six and seven-year-olds from Holmer Lake Primary School in Wolverhampton will treat residents at neighbouring Lake View Residential Care Home in Brookside to a modern take on a festive tradition, with their nativity play ‘The Stable Boy’.
Manager Sally-Ann Matts said: “There is nothing more festive than the sound of children singing around a Christmas tree.
“Our residents love visits from our young friends from Holmer Lake – their eyes light up when they see them – so this is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit.”
Next week the angelic voices of children from West Lodge Primary School in Pinner will entertain the team and residents at Haven Residential Care Home in Hatch End.
The 10-to-11 year olds will sing a variety of traditional carols, including Away in a Manger and Silent Night, as well as some modern Christmas songs.
The home’s manager Rea Williams said: “The children entertained our residents at this year’s Harvest Festival and everyone had such a marvellous time that we invited them back for our Christmas celebrations.
Choristers aged eight to 11 from Great Malvern Primary School will don their Santa hats and tinsel for their performance at Hastings Residential Care Home in Malvern.
Meanwhile the team and residents at Wolverhampton’s Highcroft Hall Residential Care Home will receive a special performance from Morton School’s very own ‘Morton Glee Club’.
The 11 to 16-year-olds will all perform classics such as Silent Night, as well as more modern festive pop songs, including Justin Bieber’s Mistletoe.
