A Hipperholme care home invited its local school to come and sing for them.

Pupils from Hipperholme Grammar Junior School attended Sandholme Fold care home to perform a variety of songs. Directed by music teacher Joan Zarneh, the children encouraged the residents to sing along.

Sophie Noble played a lullaby on the piano and Albert Parker performed a piece called ‘Strange Things Happen’ on the piano. Isabelle Williams performed her grade 2 examination piece on the piano and Charlotte Wood treated her audience to her grade 1 examination piece.

The choir sang ‘Can you feel the love tonight?’ from The Lion King as well as a selection of well known favourite songs from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

The children were delighted that their audience was joined by two officers from the Lower Valley neighbourhood policing team PC Nick Bamforth and Special Constable Will Leah.

Sue Oliver, marketing officer, said; “It was a very enjoyable hour spent at Sandholme Fold and the children returned to school with a song in their hearts and their spirits lifted.”
