St Anne Line Junior School Choir WEB

On Wednesday 5 December, the wards and corridors of Basildon University Hospital (BTUH) were filled with the harmonious vocals of the St Anne Line Catholic Juniors School choir.

Children from the Basildon school choir visited several clinical areas bringing some much-needed festive fun to patients, staff and visitors.

One of the wards they visited was Linford ward which specialises in trauma and orthopaedic care. Ward manager, Clare Turner, was quick to praise the positive effects of the choir on her ward: “Many of our patients are struggling to cope with the demands of rehabilitation and I think the visit of the choir has given a much-needed moral boost for our patients and will help them push through their rehabilitation. Our staff were also delighted to see the choir and experience some festive fun on the ward.”

BTUH Chaplain, David Bates, organiser of the event, added:

“For many of us, the meaning of Christmas can be lost in the bustle of preparation… As ever, it is the children who remind us that beneath the tinsel and glitter is a message of hope. So I pray that for all of us, and especially those recovering in hospital, that now would be the Advent of a season for renewed life, health and happiness.”
