A PRIMARY school choir brought Christmas cheer to patients at a unit for older people with mental health needs.

The choir from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School visited The Woodlands, run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH).

Pupils from the Herringthorpe school put on a concert for residents, who are aged over 65 and need special care for issues including dementia.

The carol service was led by RDaSH chaplain Fr Andy Graydon.

Re-ablement worker Tracey Green organised the event. She said: “I’d like to say a big thank you to the children and staff from St Mary’s for visiting us.

“They sang beautifully and our patients are still talking about what a wonderful time they had.”
