Christmas festivities at the Victoria Hospital began in earnest this week with the help of pupils from two local schools

Fifteen pupils from St Andrews High School and their teacher came along to sing Christmas carols on Tuesday.  Patients, staff and visitors were treated to festive favourites in the main reception and a special performance in the Victoria Hospice.


On Wednesday, pupils from Kirkcaldy North Primary School switched on the Hospital’s Christmas tree lights and visited the Maternity Unit and Children’s Unit singing festive songs to the parents, babies, children and staff in those areas.

Damian Murray, NHS Healthcare Chaplain who liaised with the local schools to help organise the visits, said:  “I was delighted to welcome the pupils from St Andrews High School and Kirkcaldy North Primary School this week. 

“The patients and staff enjoyed their visits and it was a pleasure to hear them singing.  It is a great start to the Christmas festivities in the hospital.”
