Paisley Salvation Army Brave Storm Barra To Perform For Deanfield Residents
15 December 2021
Big-hearted musicians from Paisley’s Salvation Army Band kept a Christmas promise to Residents of Deanfield despite the horrible weather.
The hardy trio of trumpeters and a tuba player didn’t let Storm Barra stop them from playing Christmas carols in the Home’s grounds.
Earlier in the day, Colleagues had put up beautiful Christmas lights outside to frame the festive performance.
Then, at 6pm, the Salvation Army Band arrived with their instruments to play a selection of Christmas carols for their appreciative audience.
Activities Co-ordinator Emily Campbell said that the Residents were overjoyed to enjoy a Christmas concert from the warmth and comfort of the lounge.
Emily said: “This was the perfect way for us to get into the Christmas spirit.
“The Residents absolutely loved hearing the band play their favourite carols, and they were singing along.
“It was fabulous to see so many residents turn out to watch the concert, including many of the gentlemen who live here.
“The Paisley Salvation Army were so wonderful to soldier on even though the weather was awful.”
Inside, the Residents enjoyed refreshments and mince pies during the concert.
Emily added: “There’s nothing more Christmassy than a nice mince pie and your favourite carols.
“This was the perfect way to kick off our festivities for the month.”
