Christmas cheer at Havering hospice
Patients at St Francis Hospice have been full of Christmas cheer as they have enjoyed parties and festive performances from school choirs.
Around 60 patients who attend the Havering-atte-Bower hospice in the daytime enjoyed the Christmas parties last Friday and on Monday where nurses dressed up as music icons such as Tina Turner and Elvis.
Staff entertained patients with their singing, funny games and Santa came along too.
Patient Edith Adcock said: “The party was terrific, it really gave me a lift.
“I’ve been coming to day hospice since April and it helps me a lot. I can see a doctor if I need to and that puts my mind at rest.”
