THE choir of Wellington School sang for residents, staff and visitors of Wyncourt Nursing Home in Timperley to help promote National Dignity in Care day.

The annual day aims to raise awareness to ensure people who use care services are treated as individuals and are given choice, control and a sense of purpose in their daily lives.

Chris Jordan, activity co-ordinator at the nursing home said: "As it was National Dignity in Care day, staff from the home thought it would be lovely to bring the generations together to raise awareness of this important campaign.

"The choir sang beautifully and afterwards stayed to talk to the residents. Everyone really enjoyed the morning and the children have promised to visit again."

After, all of the students received gingerbread 'Dignity Heart' biscuits, baked and decorated by residents of Wyncourt as a thank you gift.

Chris Holt, assistant head teacher at Wellington said: "Community is one of our core values and wherever possible we like our students to go out to visit the local community - It was a really nice afternoon and really nice for our students to be able to visit local people to make a difference."
