Pupils from St Helen’s College Gardening Club have applied for a £1,000 grant to create a garden for Sweetcroft Care Home PUPILS at an Uxbridge school are appealing for votes from the public for funding to create a garden at a nearby care home.
Year 4 and 5 children at St Helen’s College Gardening Club have applied for a £1,000 grant from the Aviva Community Fund to design and build a garden for Sweetcroft Care Home, in Sweetcroft Lane.
For more than a year, pupils from the school, in Parkway, have been paying fortnightly visits to the care home to perform songs and take part in arts and crafts activities with the residents.
Headteacher Jill Crehan said: “The relationship between St Helen’s College and Sweetcroft Care Home is such a good example of a mutually beneficial arrangement between two local institutions.
“Our pupils gain valuable experience in their local community and really enjoy speaking to the residents about their lives, as well as performing songs and accompanying choreography.
“The residents and care home staff tell us that they look forward to our visits and enjoy the injection of youth and music that we bring.
“We hope so much that our community will support us in this bid, as the new garden would be a wonderful addition to this residential care home.”
