Cliftonville Care Home Celebrates Easter with Local Community
At Avery, across our homes, we are proud to have built strong community links with many individuals, including young people. Research suggests intergenerational interactions can increase well-being and improve children’s social and emotional skills. Residents at Cliftonville Care Home in Northampton warmly welcome children from their local primary school, Abington Vale. More recently, they took part in an Easter bonnet decorating competition together.
Both residents and the students created their own bonnets, each picking an overall winner, before taking part in an easter egg hunt together. In addition, staff, and residents at Cliftonville organised a successful Easter raffle, with funds raised donated to the local primary school for new playground equipment. The team were delighted to raise over £200, which they presented to staff and pupils from Abington Vale on 23rd May.
Senior General Manager, Shweta Mendon, stated, “We were pleased to welcome back the staff and students from Abington Vale to present the cheque and we are looking forward to continuing to build invaluable intergenerational links together.”
