Teenagers work with residents at Spennymoor care home
FUND RAISING: Victoria Larn, Michael Lynn, Lothian House activities coordinator Edith May and Eleanor Bage try their onesies on during tombola
TEENAGERS are bridging the generation gap to help residents of a care home while developing new skills.
A group of 16 and 17-year-olds from Spennymoor and Ferryhill have given up their spare time to raise money and befriend residents at Lothian House Care Home, in Spennymoor.
A tombola at Asda, Spennymoor, raised £250 and a onesie walk from Durham to Spennymoor this weekend will boost the residents’ comfort fund which pays for activities.
The group also improved the grounds to host a garden tea party and have plans to hold a fashion show and entertainment nights.
Volunteer Lexie Daye said: “It makes me feel so proud to glam up the garden for the residents at Lothian House.”
The young people got involved in the four-week project through the National Citizen Service.
