Our choir have helped an Ely care home resident celebrate her 101st birthday, presenting her with handmade cards and singing Happy Birthday.

Lily Hale, who has lived at Lily House care home in Ely for six years, was joined by the choir and family members to celebrate the momentous birthday.

After receiving dozens of cards and a rendition of Happy Birthday from the schoolchildren, Lily and her family enjoyed an afternoon tea.

Now that Covid restrictions have been relaxed, the care home, on Lynn Road, and Isle of Ely Primary School have resumed their intergenerational work which sees pupils visit the home to read to residents, take part in group play activities and learn about history from residents.
