YOUNG and old came together to get creative in an arts and crafts day at a residential home.

Children from Lightcliffe Primary School visited Sandholme Fold Residential Home in Hipperholme this week.

The children and the residents worked together to create cards for Mother’s Day and for Easter.

Care assistant Tarena Fairhurst said: “It was a lovely day. Everybody loved it.”

Maggie Bottomley, school support assistant, said: “They helped make greetings cards with the residents.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed it. One of the children, when she finished her card, presented it to one of the elderly residents who liked it so much.

“They were really excited walking back to school and were saying they would like to go back and do it again.”
