Bournville School choir have continued their annual tradition of visiting elderly residents’ homes in Bournville and Northfield to sing carols and spread festive cheer. This year students started off their day by taking part in the 90th birthday celebration of Alice Neil, a resident at Rowheath House in Bournville. Alice pictured below was presented with a birthday cake from 12 year old Maria Miranda Vera, 78 years her junior.
Maria said that she was absolutely delighted when she was selected to present the cake and had really enjoyed meeting Alice and having the opportunity to talk to her. Alice was equally as thrilled and said that she had never had a birthday like this before!
The bond between young and old was clear to see as residents and students joined together to sing carols and be a part of Alice’s special day.
