The choir from Lady Joanna Thorn­hill pri­mary school joined res­i­dents at the Wye home to per­form Sing by the Car­pen­ters.

The event was in­spired by the Na­tional Ac­tiv­ity Providers As­so­ci­a­tion Sing a Song in­ter­gen­er­a­tional chal­lenge and Red Nose Day. The care home raised £131.

Se­nior carer Sharon Moss was said the res­i­dents were very happy to take part with the chil­dren.

“It was lovely to see some fam­i­lies and rel­a­tives join­ing in as well.”

Katie Con­ners, also a se­nior carer, said she was very happy with Bram­bles’ con­tri­bu­tion, adding: “Red Nose Day is about lots of peo­ple com­ing to­gether and chang­ing lives and we can hon­estly say that we at Bram­bles have def­i­nitely con­trib­uted to that.”
