The Broadland Youth Choir carried out their annual visit to the North Walsham War Memorial Hospital to sing to patients having to spend Christmas in the hospital.

Organised by the Friends of North Walsham Hospital group, the visit saw upbeat, seasonal classics performed by nine vocalists, aged eight to 16, from the Salhouse choir.

Friends' secretary Angela Batson said: 'You can see how the patients, and their visiting families, really enjoy the young choristers through their smiles and applause.

'It is quite emotional.'
