St Albans Beaver Scouts brought some festive spirit to residents at a local care home.
Swapping campfire songs for carols, girls and boys from 3rd St Albans Thor Colony performed songs at the Oak Tree Manor Residential Home in Waverly Road.
Louis Healey, eight, said: “It was really fun singing Christmas songs with my friends and helping make other people happy.”
The Beavers have chosen to work with The Alzheimer’s Society, and have been learning about dementia as part of the Scout Association’s A Million Hands Campaign, in order to earn their Community Impact Staged Activity Badge.
Anny Hooper, one of the leaders of the Thor Beaver Colony said: “I’m really proud of the girls and boys from Thor Beaver Colony choosing to bring some Christmas spirit to the local community. It was a cracking performance.”
