Wills Primary carols for elderly
THERE WAS JOYOUS NOISE through the streets of Dover yesterday as 65 angelic voices sang their way to the Love And Care Nursing Home.
The Helping Hands of Wills Primary School visited the Christ Church home to perform for the elderly residents and leave a Christmas message with their audience. The group, founded in 1998, comprises 65 members.
Alice George, patron at the school, said the idea was to help the children spread some Christmas cheer.
“We hosted a fundraising event two weeks ago, and have used the funds to purchase a gift for the residents. The essence is to expose the children to both cultural and charitable aspects in society. After here, we are going over to Turtle Beach Hotel to serenade the tourists,” she said.
The children wowed the residents with their renditions of Christmas carols and a play, armed with angels, three wise men, Mary, Joseph and a baby Jesus in a manager, as they delivered their glad tidings which were written by teachers Shelly Roach and Beverly Williams.
Angela Ashby, assistant director at the nursing home, said she was blown away by the performance of the little ones.
“The children have performed with much gusto and I am happy that they could come and share what they have learnt with the residents who I know enjoyed the show as much as I have,” she said. (RA)
