A Sanctuary Care home in St John’s, Worcester was filled with the angelic sound of children singing Christmas carols earlier this week.
Seven to 11-year-old choristers from Dines Green Primary School treated residents of Regent Residential Care Home in School Road to a festive performance of traditional carols.
Classic carols and mince pies
The youngsters, who wore Santa hats and novelty festive headbands, sang favourites such as We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Away in a Manger, before tucking into mince pies and cakes with the residents and team.
Following the performance resident Auriol Pakington, who is 94 years old said: “I really enjoyed the children coming in and singing to us. They sounded wonderful.”
“…was a lovely way to get into the spirit of Christmas.”
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Bridie Gray said: “The smiles on the faces of our residents when they heard the children were wonderful to see – it was a lovely way to get into the spirit of Christmas.”
Meanwhile fellow resident Thelma Breeze, who is 86 years old, added: “It was so lovely to see all the children, it brought back lovely memories of when my own children used to perform Christmas carols.”
Teacher from the school Miss Campbell-Kelly concluded: “The children love going along to Christmas carols and it’s a great experience for them to go into the community and share their festive cheer with such a wonderful audience.”
