A choir from a Bury school have been spreading Christmas cheer in the community.

The choir from St Stephen’s Church of England Primary School visited Bolton Road Methodist Church, Abbeydale Residential Home, and Fusilier Court in Bury, and performed a selection of songs for the residents and members of the local community.

They encouraged their audience to join them in singing some well-known Christmas Carols such as 'We Wish you a Merry Christmas'.

Once they'd finished singing, the children and residents enjoyed engaging in some beautiful and meaningful conversations about their plans for Christmas and learning about each other's lives.

Choir lead Isabel Potter said: “It was a special and memorable moment for all involved.

“Seeing our children serving our wider community and spreading joy was a wonderful experience.”

One of the children from the choir said: “It made me feel warm and fuzzy, and I really enjoyed it.”

One of the residents said: “It absolutely made my day.

“The children were so polite and friendly.”
