Royal Star & Garter Residents and Staff Celebrate Christmas with Annual Service

Royal Star & Garter residents past and present have been remembered during the charity’s annual Starlight service.

The Christmas service was broadcast for residents and staff in Royal Star & Garter’s Homes in Solihull, Surbiton and High Wycombe on Sunday 4 December, and is now also available online.

The charity provides loving, compassionate care to veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia.

The service features residents remembering Christmases past, piano playing by teenage Surbiton volunteer Jemima, poetry recital from staff, and a performance of ‘O Holy Night’ by pupils at Pipers Corner School in High Wycombe.

As is tradition with Starlight, viewers have the opportunity to hang a star on their Christmas trees in tribute to a loved one. Paper stars can be downloaded and printed off.

The service also includes a poignant tribute to the charity’s former Patron, The late Queen Elizabeth II.
