Stephens Scown’s choir for its Cornish offices – The Scown Roses – performed for the residents of Crossroads Care Home in Scorrier just before Christmas. Residents and staff enjoyed an hour long performance of Christmas songs.

Kate Theophilus, real estate partner in Stephens Scown’s rural team and a member of the choir said: “The tinsel may be packed away for another year, but we wanted to share these photos from our festive performance at Crossroads Care Home to bring a little cheer to a gloomy January. We had a ball and enjoyed watching some of the residents singing and dancing along with our singing. It is really satisfying that something that started as a social activity at work is able to spread some happiness to others.”

Matthew Cross, chief officer at Anson Care Services said: “It was lovely for Stephens Scown’s choir to take the time to visit us and perform for the residents. We all really enjoyed the performance.”

Earlier in December The Scown Roses performed at the Truro Primestock Show and also on a separate occasion for late night Christmas shoppers in Truro, where they raised money for the firm’s charity of the year Cornwall Air Ambulance.

The Scown Roses choir was set up in 2014 following Stephens Scown’s staff away day, where a fun singing activity sparked an enthusiasm across the firm to set up a choir. The Scown Roses meet weekly to practice and includes staff from the firm’s Truro and St Austell offices. Stephens Scown’s Exeter office also has a choir – The Rolling Scowns.
