Student Leah Morgan said: ‘One patient actually got emotional and said it reminded him of the days he was in a choir service, back in 1941. ‘We feel extremely privileged to have had this opportunity, and believe we have impacted on the patients.

‘One event in Jubilee House was especially emotional, which lead to a mixture of laughter, tears and nostalgia.’
