Police Carols Bring Joy To Pearce Home

Residents of the Pearce Home in Suva shed tears of joy as the Fiji Police Force band entertained them with Christmas carols yesterday morning.

The seven residents of the home were treated to early morning carol singing by the band.

A former Miss Hibiscus and resident Libeling Marlow said she could not contain her emotions when the band started performing for them.

“They are experienced and it’s so wonderful that they take time out to come and play and sing for us,” Ms Marlow said.

“Last year was the first time we had them and we really looked forward again to this day this year. I started to cry when they were singing ‘Joy to the World’.

“It’s nice to have that feeling that there are some places in the world where there is joy. We are so lucky in Fiji when we think of all the other countries and look at all the fighting and troubles they have, we are fortunate here,” she said.

The home’s matron, Ruci Kava, said the Christmas spirit the band brought to the home boosted the morale of its residents.

“Especially with these senior residents when they don’t have relatives around and most of them have their relatives abroad so they are always happy when they have visitations like this,” Ms Kava said.

The Police Force chaplain, Assistant Superintendent of Police Isireli Ledua, said their visit to the home was part of their Operation ‘Veiyadravi’ during this festive season.
