Spreading festive cheer
3:00pm Friday 20th December 2013 in News
STAFF and residents of a care home in Chipping Campden enjoyed a visit from sixth form students as they hosted a festive activity session.
Ten students from Chipping Campden School recently visited Mill House care home as part of their Health and Social Studies course.
They teamed up to craft a range of Christmas cards in preparation for the festive season, before enjoying a chat over coffee and cake.
Home Manager Koren Evans-Slade said: “It was fantastic to see such positive social interaction between our residents and the students.
“Our residents welcome the opportunity to spend time with members of the local community, but they particularly enjoy meeting younger people as it offers a different dimension to the social activities.”
Meanwhile, members of the community were treated to a tea party and performance from singer Ruby Lamont at the care home’s ‘Sugar-Free’ Tea Party. The event was to raise money for Diabetes UK and Parkinson’s UK, as part of the Caring Homes ‘pharitable partnership’ initiative.
