Killisick School carol singers entertain care home residents

Published: Monday 20th December 2021

Children from Killisick Primary School in Arnold have brought tears of joy to care home residents at Coppice Lodge.

The school choir sang Christmas carols from the care home gardens while residents listened from the comfort of the lounge.

Coppice Lodge, situated on Coppice Road in Arnold, is a residential and dementia care home.

Tonie Owen, a resident at Coppice Lodge, said: “It was so magical to see the children again, it really warmed my heart that they have taken the time to do this, it has made my year.”

Lifestyle Manager, Lorna Thornley, added: “It was an emotional afternoon as the residents loved it so much, they were all in tears, all the children and residents were waving to each other as they sang ‘We wish you a merry Christmas’, Silent Night’ and ‘King of all the world’.

“Afterwards we gave the children hot chocolates and gingerbread men. We also presented them with a cheque for £200 which we have raised for the school to buy their own radio station equipment.”

Linsey Clark, Killisick Primary School head teacher, said: “Coppice Lodge has always supported our school, we can’t thank them enough for everything they do and this is just the icing on the cake. We cannot wait for the day that we can all come in and visit their wonderful residents again in person.”
