Christmas came early for a group of care home residents thanks to the generosity of a group of schoolchildren.

The teenagers, who attend St Bonaventure’s, visited East Ham Care Centre, in Shrewsbury Road, for their traditional Christmas carolling to spread some festive cheer to patients in the dementia and rehabilitation wards earlier this month.

The 6th form gospel choir group, joined head of music, Keasha Brockett and Ms Wanu Salau, in singing several traditional classics, which went down a treat with the care workers and patients.

Di Halliwell, from St Bonaventure’s, said: “It was a magical moment and a lovely way to add some sparkle to the day.”
