Cub Scouts from Hartshill visited the George Eliot Hospital last week to join a special Christmas evening service for patients and their families in Nason Ward.
Staff on Nason Ward organised this special festive service with the help from the George Eliot Hospital chaplaincy team to support the spiritual needs of patients within the ward who may be spending Christmas at the hospital.
1st Hartshill Cub Scouts spread joy to everyone that came along by singing festive favourites, including the 12 Days of Christmas and other popular hymns. Music was provided by the scout leaders who beautifully played violin, accordion and flute to accompany the merry choir of young people. A lovely spread of tea and cakes was shared with everyone who attended the event.
Hospital Chaplain, Ricarda Witcombe said: “Many patients enjoy going to church or faith groups over Christmas and may miss this spiritual experience if they are in hospital.
“We would like to thank all the Nason ward staff for organising this seasonal service and the cub scouts for making the evening so special.”
Patients and their families are also invited to come along to the Christmas Day service in the hospital chapel at 10.30am if they are able to do so.
