We aren’t able to invite visitors into our nursing homes just yet, so we thought it would be lovely to look back at the time we had some very special visitors last year.
Residents at our St Catherine’s nursing home are lucky enough to have some great friends in the offices above their home – including some very talented singers and musicians who work in St Vincent’s Diocesan Offices.
So, last year, our residents had a fantastic time when the office staff surprised them with a visit, dressed in Christmas outfits, to entertain them with a fabulously festive collection of carols and hymns – and lots of good humour, too.
Songs included, ‘White Christmas’, ‘I Saw Three Ships’ and ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ and there was even a piece performed on Northumbrian pipes.
Although we can’t enjoy a live performance this year, there will still be plenty of Christmas music playing throughout our home to spread some festive joy.
