The ‘Isle Singers’, a small choir of ladies, sang to the patients in Aria Court Care Home in March on Thursday.

Rosemary Westwell, choir leader, said: “It was wonderful to see the faces of the patients and their visitors light up.

“This little concert was even more special for me because my husband has been in this care home for over 10 years and sometimes it is very difficult to communicate with him.

“When we sang to him on Thursday he was obviously quite overcome with positive emotion and he and I were able to rekindle the bond that has been with us since we married.”

The choir then visited patients in their rooms and sang songs at their bedside.

The choir has been singing for over 40 years. For more information or choir visits contact rjwestwell@hotmail.com
