Care Home Choir Rocks Around the Christmas Tree

With visiting entertainers unable to attend their Christmas Party this year, staff at Edward Moore House Residential Care Home went all out and formed their own choir to keep partygoers entertained.

Their annual Christmas Party would usually welcome plenty of family and friends, as well as a live singer, who would provide the entertainment but due to the ongoing pandemic, visitors are still not permitted at the Gravesend care home.

With that in mind and not wanting to disappoint their residents, brave staff of the home formed their very own Christmas choir, in a bid to lift everyone’s spirits and spread some Christmas cheer.

The group spent several weeks practicing in the lead up to the party, to ensure their performance ran smoothly and they didn’t miss a beat when they took center stage.

Thankfully, it was all right on the night and as the residents enjoyed their buffet tea and a tipple or two, the choir performed a number of nostalgic Christmas Carols and classic party songs, getting everyone in the mood for some festive fun.

Chris Hutchinson, Home Manager of Edward Moore House commented: “It’s been a tough year for us all so our staff really wanted to spread some cheer this Christmas. Usually, Unique come in and sing for us but as this wasn’t possible, we decided we would be the entertainment! Despite some nerves, it ended up being a lot of fun and the residents thoroughly enjoyed it, which was the main thing.”
