Christmas visit to Darlison Court

Yesterday (Thursday 20 December 2018), a small group of National students headed down to Darlison Court residential home in Hucknall for their annual Christmas visit.

A number of students sang for the residents, showing off a repertoire of songs including Christmas classics like ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Hark the Herald Angels’. Mince pies, crackers and cards were gratefully received by the residents who expressed great joy in our visit.

Students also got involved in games of dominoes with some of the residents, and it was lovely to see the relationships that were formed with conversations flowing and swapping of stories.

Thank you to everyone involved, including Miss Dalby and Mrs Foster for the effort they put into making this a thoroughly enjoyable event for all residents and students.
