Washington singer puts her talent to good use with free performances for the care homes and vulnerable people
A Washington singer has been putting her talents to good use by offering free performances for care homes, elderly and the vulnerable during the coronavirus crisis.
Laura Cairns, 30, has been offering the service during difficult times to put smiles on faces and spread happiness to those who may be struggling.
Throughout the coronavirus crisis, Laura has been performing for care homes, children, elderly, the vulnerable and on Facebook Live free of charge, asking only for a voluntary donation.
The performances have been cheering up the Washington community during the crisis and have earned her praise from all over the area.
Laura said: “I believe it’s vital to support your community for the sake of each other’s well-being. People say we are all in the same boat but I believe we are all in different boats but heading down the same stream.
The smiles on people’s faces and the happiness it spreads is what makes me fall in love with what I do! If I can brighten someone’s day then that also benefits me as it brightens my day to make someone smile!”
Laura, who is a former children’s entertainer and holiday park singer, started off the lockdown by offering free entertainment for children over Facebook Live and then saw an opportunity to help the most vulnerable in the community.
Since then, Laura has been cheering up care home residents, performing special birthday performances and even singing directly to someone right outside their homes.
