Christmas at our St Catherine’s nursing home is never complete without a visit from a school choir and, even in this difficult year, we found a way to keep to the tradition.
A total of 55 Santa-hat-wearing students from English Martyrs’ Primary School lined our home’s kitchen garden to entertain our residents with songs like Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Away in a Manger.
The familiar sights and sounds of children singing did wonders to lift spirits and remind everyone that the excitement of Christmas Day is just around the corner. Even when the concert was over, our residents found themselves smiling and humming the songs long after the students had left.
“The children had voices of angels,” said our resident, Win. “Their visit made my day … no, my year!”
