Boys earn praise at care home

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

PUPILS have been giv­ing back to their lo­cal com­mu­nity by vis­it­ing care home res­i­dents and hold­ing char­ity fundrais­ers.

The Ab­bot­sFriends group was formed last year by nine friends at Ab­bots­field School in Uxbridge who ini­tially met once a week.

Now the young­sters are in­volved in a range of ac­tiv­i­ties, from men­tor­ing year seven boys to par­tic­i­pat­ing in their school coun­cil. They reg­u­larly visit the Sweet­croft Res­i­den­tial Care Home in Uxbridge to spend time with the res­i­dents, par­tic­i­pate in ac­tiv­i­ties and help main­tain the gar­den.

Sam Ali­son, man­ager of the care home in Sweet­croft Lane, said: “All res­i­dents and staff at Sweet­croft Res­i­den­tial Care Home have thor­oughly en­joyed the company of the Ab­bots­field boys. They have in­ter­acted very well with the res­i­dents with a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties, one be­ing when they made spi­ders for Hal­loween.”

Kerry O’Mal­ley, cover su­per­vi­sor at the school in Clifton Gar­dens, said: “The staff at Ab­bots­field are very proud of the Ab­bot­sFriends pupils.”
