People with Learning Disabilities Star in Christmas Charity Single

Adults with learning disabilities, autism and complex physical and mental health have recorded a festive music video and single to raise money for charity.

Perfect Christmas’ is written and performed by colleagues at care group Home From Home Care and the individuals they support at care homes across Lincolnshire.

Available on all popular streaming platforms and on YouTube, all proceeds raise money for Say Hello, a charity which organises inclusive and fun activities for adults with learning disabilities in the community.

Individuals from across Home from Home Care’s 11 care homes and specialist integration facilities performed for the charity single and its music video, singing and dancing alongside support workers and other colleagues.

In keeping with the organisation’s aim of helping people live life to the fullest, the single is a catchy song about coming together and spreading kindness this Christmas.

Band member and communications partner at Home From Home Care, Sharna-Mae Brown said:

“We recorded the Christmas single last year as a tribute to key workers during Covid, and this year we wanted to make it bigger and better by getting the individuals that we support across our 11 care homes more involved.

“We invited the individuals to come and record a part for the Christmas single and they had a fantastic time. It was so rewarding and fulfilling to see them singing along and having a bit of a boogie to the Christmas track and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

Founding director of Home From Home Care, Hugo de Savary said:

“At Home From Home Care, Christmas is a time of sharing joy with the individuals we support, which you can see in the video, and we wanted to release a Christmas single to get our individuals involved and raise some money for charity. It’s a great tune and every stream or download raises money for a charity doing important work to help adults with learning disabilities overcome loneliness in our communities.”

IT project partner at Home from Home Care, David Taylor, who performs on the track said:

“Everyone loved recording and producing this Christmas single and it’s got us all feeling very festive. This is all about celebrating individuals who have learning disabilities and other conditions so it was important to us that they were really involved with this song. Plus it’s a real Christmas cracker. I honestly can’t get the tune out of my head.”
