WATCH: Malta Police Force Surprise Elderly in Care Homes and Staff With Banda Tunes

Processions may have been cancelled for 2020, but residents in care homes around the island were pleasantly surprised to hear upbeat music coming from the streets this Easter Sunday morning.

Malta’s Police Force were on a different kind of duty this morning, as they grabbed their instruments and played joyful traditional music around Malta’s care homes.

Playing classic ‘festa tunes’ and other Maltese classics like ‘Viva Malta’, not only brightened up their days, but also ours! We loved seeing them on our feeds.

Well done to the Malta Police Force on such a great initiative.

“Prosit, what a sweet gesture,” said one person online, while another said: “Happy Easter to you and your families and thank you for your service, stay safe!”

Now that’s one way of wishing everyone stuck at home a happy Easter!
