ANGELIC voices filled a care home in Worcester with the sound of music when children from a primary school performed carols for the elderly residents.

Choristers from St Clement’s C of E Primary School in St John’s dropped into Regent Care Home to treat residents to a very special festive performance.

From Hark the Herald Angels Sing and It was on a Starry Night to Away in a Manger - which was performed using sign language - the 35 six to 11-year-olds brought tears of joy to the eyes of some of the residents.

Teacher Amy Rees said: “The children really looked forward to coming and seeing all the residents and have been so excited. They have really enjoyed the experience and have been practising very hard, giving up their time after school to practise.”

The children even allowed the new manager of the home - which is also in St John’s - Andrew Green to sing along with them to ‘It was on a Starry Night’.

Andrew said: “It was a very special day indeed and I felt very privileged to be able to sing along with the children.”
