A Sanctuary Care home in St John’s, Worcester was filled with the angelic sound of children singing Christmas carols earlier this week.
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.”
