Choral Christmas Delight in Care Home Competition
Residents from Kiwi House performed to a packed audience of relatives and loved ones at St Catherine’s Church, Burbage as part of a care home singing competition.
Each of the 5 choirs performed two of their favourite songs including a Christmas classic and together the five choirs taking part all gave a rousing performance of We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Whilst also fun, the choirs were judged by an experienced panel with four members and the leader of St Catherine’s church choir. The resident choirs were treated to a fish & chip lunch before the awards were presented. Kiwi House picked up the award for best small choir.
