Residents and guests at Leadon Bank Extra Care Housing enjoyed an hour-long performance from the choir last Thursday (18 May), which included amusing solo pieces and three poetry readings based on a horticultural theme.
The event was organised by the scheme, owned and operated by Shaw healthcare, to raise funds for a local horticultural charity, Herefordshire Growing Point, who arrange gardening and nature-based activities for elderly people and also those living with a disability.
Activities co-ordinator, Ursula Ashworth, commented: “There was a lovely and uplifting atmosphere and the first class contribution of the Malvern Male Voice Choir was very much appreciated by both staff and residents.”
Leadon Bank comprises of extra care apartments for those over 55, as well as a 10 bed residential suite and day care.
Shaw healthcare provides a spectrum of services from comprehensive care packages through to low level support in the community for older people and adults with physical, sensory or mental health support needs.
