The festive lilt of carols echoed around the wards and corridors of North Walsham War Memorial Hospital as patients enjoyed a seasonal singing treat from talented youngsters.
The annual visit by the Broadland Youth Choir is organised by the hospital’s Friends group to bring some festive cheer to those having to spend Christmas in the unit.
Gentle and upbeat seasonal songs were performed by nine choristers from the choir for 8 to 16-year-olds which is based at Salhouse, and which says its regular visit to the hospital is one of the youngsters’ favourite ‘gigs’.
Friends’ secretary Angela Batson said: “You can see how thepatients, and their visiting families, really enjoy the young choristersthrough their smiles and applause. It is quite emotional.”
The Friends will be back at the hospital again next weekend delivering festive gifts to patients.
