Welsh Youth give up Christmas Party to visit Local Hospital

Youth from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the South and West Wales area gave up their annual Christmas party to offer service which involved singing to patients, relatives and staff at Morriston Hospital, Swansea.   

The youth, aged between 12 and 18 years, also brought a wide variety of items and goods to be donated to the Welsh Refugee Council that will assist people arriving in the UK who are fleeing war and terror in countries such as Africa and the Middle East.

After visiting and singing a selection of Christmas carols and songs on several hospital wards, the youth and leaders concluded the evening by singing a delightful rendition of 'Angels We Have Heard On High' in the main hospital foyer. One of the nurses stated that the sound and harmonies travelling down the corridor as she was going off duty was absolutely beautiful and created the true spirit of Christmas. Ian Govier, regional Church leader stated, “Compared to their traditional Christmas party event I’m confident that this experience will hold long lasting, special memories for these wonderful youth.
