A CARE home’s residents will receive Christmas presents this year thanks to a nearby school’s festive scheme.

Worsbrough Common Primary School and Highstone Mews care home, on Highstone Road, worked together pre-Covid but due to the restrictions regarding the virus had to temporarily halt their relationship.

Rebecca Paddock, headteacher at the school, told the Chronicle: “We know that parents like to bring in presents for staff at the end of the year and we thought that we could ask them to bring them in for residents at Highstone Mews instead.

“Prior to Covid we used to visit the residents - foundation pupils and the schools dogs used to attend to raise the spirits.

“The children are making cards at school and sending them to the care home too - hopefully we can send out some gifts.

“We’ve had contact from a company called Unique School Solutions and they’re pulling a lot of presents together and getting involved.

“Gifts can be brought to the school.”
