Leigh Infirmary enjoys Christmas cheer from Wigan and Leigh College music students

Newsdate: 15 December 2014

Assistant Chaplain, Jane Vost, contacted the college to see if they would like to bring some Christmas cheer to Leigh Infirmary.

Students arrived accompanied by their tutor, Deborah Walford, with a range of instruments. They performed songs in the entrance foyer, dining area and the Hanover Centre.

Jane, who organised the visit, contacted the college in order to build links between the hospital and the local community.

She said: “I think it is great that we have been able to have some involvement with the local community, especially at this time of year. I think it is very important that we remember our patients, staff and volunteers, who are in the hospital over the Christmas period.

WWL Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care already does work with local schools such as Deanery High School and Woodfield Primary School, and so I thought it would be great to ask the college if they would like to be involved.”

The festive feeling will continue to spread at WWL throughout the Christmas period. On Tuesday 16 December, Wrightington will be enjoying carols led by the Christmas Carollers, who are a group made up from Parbold Chamber Choir, Standish Church and All Saints Church Appley Bridge.

The performance will be recorded live by the Hospital Radio.
