Woodbridge Combined Care Homes Choir Christmas Carol Concert brings festive cheer

Woodbridge Combined Care Homes Choir performed their Christmas Carol Concert at the Methodist Church in Woodbridge on Monday 3 December.

Featuring residents, relatives, friends and staff of Seckford Almshouses, Jubilee House and Grove Court, the choir performed a selection of festive favourites in the concert that was open to all the community.

The audience was treated to traditional carols and festive favourites including O Little Town of Bethlehem, In The Bleak Midwinter and Let It Snow. The programme included readings, by residents and staff, which included T’was the Night Before Christmas, The Puppies Christmas and A.A. Milne’s King John’s Christmas.

The Combined Care Homes Choir is funded by Comic Relief and was launched in February 2018. The choir offers care home residents, their families and staff the chance to participate in and enjoy a shared interest and the opportunity to sing, to perform, as well as to meet people from other care settings, who may be experiencing situations similar to their own.

Sarah Kopferschmitt, Head of Care at Seckford Care said: “We are proud to work in collaboration with Grove Court on the Woodbridge Combined Care Homes Choir. The Choir has given residents of care homes around Woodbridge the opportunity to indulge their interest in singing in an open and friendly setting with other likeminded people.”
