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.”
