Our generous residents collected nearly £150 for The Air Ambulance Service through a special Christmas performance from our choir, held on Wednesday 14 December.
Over 100 residents attended. They enjoyed a variety of songs and Christmas carols sang by the choir, as well as mulled wine and mince pies.
The Air Ambulance Service operates locally across Warwickshire and performs a vital rapid response service for those who need urgent medical attention.
“We care deeply about good causes at Lime Tree Village, especially at times such as Christmas,” says Village Manager Patrick Johnson. “Being around a group of such warm-hearted, generous people is one of the reasons I love my job!”
The Christmas spirit in our community is in free flow. On Friday 16 December we welcomed a class of young children from Cawston Grange Primary School, who came to sing carols and spend time our residents.
Cynthia Richards, who lives in Lime Tree Village, comments: “The school visits have become a Christmas tradition here and one I very much look forward to. The children sing like angels and it gets us in a seasonal mood. This year they performed a rendition of ‘Away in a Manger’, which was absolutely beautiful.”
Earlier in the month we also had a Christmas Fayre, when lots of local businesses and craftspeople set up stalls in one of the communal areas for our residents to do some Christmas shopping.
