Children from Heyhouses Endowed Church of England Primary School have delighted patients in Clifton Hospital in Lytham with a concert of Christmas carols.
The year six children from the school choir visited the hospital this week to sing carols to the patients who all got out of their hospital beds to enjoy the concert and join in.
Val Gulwell from the hospital said: “We have a lot of patients who are elderly and recuperating from being quite ill. They all loved sitting in our day room while the children sang some of their favourite carols. It really brightened their day and moved some of them to tears. It was really lovely.
“We try to do all we can to make sure a patient’s stay is pleasant and especially at this time of year we like to spread a little cheer.”
The children from the school were led by choir master Alastair Mackenzie who addressed the patients and explained the reasons behind the carol choices and encouraged them to join in.
They performed an array of eight carols including old favourites such as ‘We Three Kings of Orient Are’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas.’ They then stayed to enjoy mince pies with the patients and nurses.
