Choir singers representing nine Midlothian care homes have united under the banner of ‘One Voice’.
Organiser Mary MacFarlane drew together singers from Archview and Whitehill Lodge care homes for a show in November last year. She stressed at the time how keen she was to further develop the project by bringing on board another home for a concert in 2012.
Ten months on and Mary, an activities co-ordinator at Archview, has surpassed even her wildest expectations by forming a 60-strong choir comprising clients from across nine county care homes.
Speaking to the Advertiser last week, she said: “We have been practicing new for six months and it’s all coming together – we are looking forward to the big day. It’s fantastic to see how many people this has brought together.”
