Students from Eastgate Academy brought Christmas cheer to those attending the Dementia Café, in Lynn, on Friday by signing a mix of Christmas carols and well known classics to a packed out hall, before joining in the festivities and chatting to those in attendance.

Andy Peacock, who organisers the café along with Wendy Sayers who is a dementia support worker, said: “This is the first year that Eastgate Academy has been to visit us.

“On behalf of the Alzheimer’s Society I would like to thank the children and staff for coming along, they were absolutely fantastic. Everyone joined in and a good time was had by all.”
