Residents at Badgers Wood Care Home in Drayton are proud to be a part of the first intergenerational choir in the Norwich area. The care home formed the choir with children from Drayton C of E Primary School as part of a wider programme of intergenerational activities for residents.
The benefits of encouraging interaction between the generations are widely reported, and our residents love spending time laughing, talking, and now singing with the children.
This year the Badgers Wood residents and schoolchildren of the intergenerational choir were invited to perform at the Christmas light switch-on event at the Forum Shopping Centre in Norwich. Cheered on by a crowd of local people, the choir performed a selection of Christmas classics, with their performance being featured on local channel That’s TV Norfolk later that evening.
