Young voices are helping spread Christmas cheer to residential homes and isolated groups.

10 December 2020

Tranmere Rovers in the Community are proud to be one of the many groups partnering up with AmaSing this Christmas.

AmaSing is an inclusive Arts organisation based in Chester and Wrexham which was established in 2017. AmaSing works with over 150 schools in the UK and abroad delivering exciting arts projects, workshops and performances supporting wellbeing for thousands of children. They work with all ages and bring many different groups together through the arts.

This Christmas they have organised and compiled a film of children singing Christmas songs in their school bubbles to send to residential homes to spread some Christmas cheer to the elderly and isolated.

Rachael Borman Director of AmaSing stated “Normally at Christmas we would take children in to sing carols together with the residents and have a chat but due to restrictions with the pandemic, we knew this wouldn’t be possible but still wanted to reach out to them. We hope through this film of the children a little ray of sunshine and Christmas cheer is brought to residents and anyone feeling isolated in these uncertain times and we look forward to 2021 when hopefully we can resume back to normality and see each other again properly.”

Tranmere Rovers in the Community will distribute the film amongst the people they are in contact with as part of the Tackling Loneliness Together Project including a live showing at the regular Dementia Group session

When talking about the project Head of Community, Steve Williams, said “We’re really happy to have partnered with AmaSing for this project. The group have pulled together a brilliant video that will bring a smile to a lot of people’s faces during this time.  

In the current climate, a lot of people we are working with are feeling down and are struggling, so a project like this will certainly bring them some festive cheer and we look forward to being able to share it with them” 

AmaSing will also release the video live on Wednesday 23rd December at 6pm through their AmaSing Facebook page and YouTube channel.
