On Christmas Eve, 24th December 2013, we went caroling at Jurong East Avenue 1 Block 318A for 31 households, many of which are stay-alone elderly. We brought along musical instruments such as the guitar, flute, ukulele and shakers to bring out the joyous atmosphere. Many of the elderly enjoyed the caroling session a lot, with some singing and clapping along with us and others even touched to tears in the midst of the songs. We were really happy to bring to the elderly the festive warmth and joy!
Some feedback from our volunteers:

- “I treasure this opportunity to sing carols to the elderly on Christmas Eve. When I was young, I found it warm and peaceful to see people singing carols on the street. Now, I can bring such warmth and peace to the elderly through carols! Their joy greatly encouraged me.”
