Singing is incredibly beneficial for the mind and soul and I truly believe that singing brings great joy to our residents and improves their day-to-day lives.”
Performing for the charity’s patron, Lady Dalton, the Les Amis choir were proud to share their hard work with the charity’s esteemed guest.
Lauren Carré, Les Amis PR, Marketing and Fundraising Manager, said: “It was wonderful to see the choir perform again. I would like to say thank you to Pitcher & Le Quesne, Funeral Directors for continuing to sponsor this magical event and giving our residents an opportunity to perform.”
