Region 1 - Carol Singing by Brixton Sai Centre

This year, the members of Brixton Sai Centre once again donned their Santa hats and their Christmas jumpers to sing carols and seasonal songs at two local sheltered accommodation schemes. Brixton has had a long association with these two schemes, playing bingo at each location every month and also organising an afternoon of fun and entertainment at each location every summer.

The first session was at Truscott House in West Croydon, on Friday 20 December. It felt very magical. The residents were all sat ready and waiting for the carols to begin by the time the carollers arrived. It was wonderful to see the residents join in as we sang the glory of Lord Jesus. The joy on their faces gave a very special feeling. Afterwards, all adjourned to the dining room, which was adorned with festive decorations. Light snacks (including the obligatory mince pies with cream) were lovingly served by Centre members. All really enjoyed the magical evening and it was wonderful to see everyone happy.

On Christmas Eve, the Centre got together once again to see the joyful faces of the residents and staff of Freeman Court in Norbury. It was another magical and holy evening. Everyone took part in singing all the wonderful carols! Silent night? No, not at all, but it was indeed a holy night!
