A Christmas surprise on BBC Breakfast

In early December, BBC Breakfast did a piece on a lovely Tameside resident called Barbara who had lost her husband 18 years ago and since that time hadn’t put up one Christmas decoration and she finds this time of year particularly hard.

However, rather than sitting in her grief, she gives her time to generously to helping others at Age UK and the team at BBC Breakfast wanted to organise a little surprise for her to recognise her dedication.

Barbara is a big fan of Cliff Richard and BBC Breakfast had a very special recorded message from the man for Barbara. DYT were invited to come along and sing Cliff’s classic “Mistletoe and Wine” as a further surprise for Barbara on the day.

This heartwarming tale was featured on BBC Breakfast on Christmas morning.
