It was the fourth year the event was organised by Bishop’s Stortford resident and charity volunteer Goolmohr “Georgie” Cantel.

Woodwind of Stortford leader Mary Stock said: “It’s always our honour and privilege to come and play our music for those who are staying at St Clare over Christmas. It is so moving and rewarding for us as a group to see people’s faces light up when they hear the familiar, festive songs we play. We hope that by bringing the sound of the holiday season to St Clare, we help to make what can be a very difficult time for people just that small bit easier during Christmas.”

In-patient unit manager Vanna Poulter said: “The kind gesture brought the warmth and magic of the yuletide season to the hospice for those who are going through one of life’s most difficult journeys, facing a life-limiting illness. Little things like this make all the difference for patients and their families who are staying with us over Christmas, embodying what hospice care is all about and showing how truly special it is.”
