Big-hearted volunteers spend time at care home

First published in News

KIND hearted teenagers visited a care home last week to spruce up the environment for residents.

Volunteers from the National Citizen Service were at Don Thomspon House in Low Road, Dovercourt and put their DIY and creative skills to good use.

The youngsters painted a mural in the seaside-themed lounge and also built beach-hut style sheds in the garden.

Home manager Rebecca Dunn said: “Our residents have absolutely loved having the volunteers at the home this week; there has been a real buzz in the air.

“Some of our residents joined in with the beach hut painting, which they were absolutely delighted about, and loved chatting to the young people.

“We are delighted to have had the NCS with us and are so grateful for the wonderful improvements they’ve made to the residents’ living environment, making in an even lovelier place.”
