Hospital halls filled with the sound of Christmas

20 December 2013

On Thursday 19 December the Chaplaincy Service with help from community members, staff and the Ars Nova Choir filled the hospital with Christmas cheer as they performed carols for staff, patients and visitors.

The carollers visited the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, Te Puna Waiora, Maternity and all six inpatient wards in the new hospital, singing  two or three carols per department.

Murray Elliot, Hospital Chaplain said the carol tour of the hospital is an annual tradition and this year was particularly special as it was the first time they were singing in the new hospital.

Each year we have about 50 people volunteer to do the carols which is great. We have 12 Carols all up that we sing and a couple of fun songs such as Rudolph the Red nose reindeer.
