Noah featured on  ITV news recently, which filmed Noah and his father, Lee, singing ‘Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head’ while the television footage showed the residents at Mais House singing along.

Noah usually visits the residents at Mais House twice a week to take part in activities, but because of the lockdown he was worried that the residents might miss him.

It was Noah’s idea to start the Youtube channel. He said: “I enjoy making the videos because the residents can watch them and stay safe”.

Noah’s father Lee said: “Noah brings such joy to the residents when he visits them and these videos allow them to still hear his infectious laughter everyday”.

Since the broadcast, Noah and his father are going to perform on a charity single to raise money for the NHS, and have also been featured in videos and stories by The Telegraph and have reached well over 20k views on The Royal British Legion social media platforms.

The pair have also featured in some hilarious ‘dad dancing’ videos on Youtube with Noah teaching his dad some dance moves.

Noah makes videos to sing happy birthday to residents and also tells jokes.

The aim of the videos is to improve the residents’ mental wellbeing and stave off loneliness and isolation.

Lee said: “Noah is the star of all this. He’s brought a lot of happiness to a lot of people. I’m a very proud father.”

Mais House, at Hastings Road, Bexhill, is the only Royal British Legion home in Sussex and earlier this month held a special party and celebration to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
