Youngsters from the Broadland Youth Choir toured the wards in an annual event organised by the hospital's League of Friends.

The award-winning choir for seven to 14-year-olds was formed in 1992, is based at Salhouse, and regularly performs concerts and competitions at venues as well as community events.

Patients sang along and listened to the unaccompanied festive songs from the 17-strong choir.

Choir assistant musical director Hannah Royal said everyone enjoyed the event which was the last in the group's busy festive season.

Friends chairman Keith Jarvis added: 'Christmas is not a nice time to be in hospital, but we hope the wonderful festive singing of the choir brings some homeliness and happiness to the patients.'

The Friends use public donations to provide extras to benefit patients, visitors and staff at the hospital.
