The pre-school children, aged 3-4, from The Edinburgh Nursery visited Bupa’s Victoria Manor care home in Leith to bring their nativity show in-house and give residents the chance to enjoy the play from the comfort of their own armchair.
The nursery children also sang a selection of carols and a few festive classics, encouraging the residents to sing along with their favourites and share the Christmas cheer.
Shirley Scott, Home Manager at Bupa’s Victoria Manor care home, said: “The children had obviously worked really hard to learn the songs and all their lines for the nativity play, and it was so rewarding to see the residents singing along and enjoying the festivities.
“Carol singing is the one activity in particular that our residents look forward to at Christmas time, so it was fantastic for them to be able to take part this year from the comfort and warmth of our lounge.
“Christmas can be a lonely time of year for many people, so we always encourage activities that will help spread a little joy during the holiday season. We are very much looking forward to the nursery coming back to visit again next year.”
