AN EGGSTRA special invitation was sent to care home residents for a Runcorn school’s Easter assembly.
Residents from Simonsfield Care Home, on Boston Avenue, were invited to view the school’s display of hand decorated Easter eggs.
They had been created by pupils aged five to ten years old at The Grange Academy, on Latham Avenue, for a school competition.
The school invited the elderly residents to visit following the care home’s appeal for Easter eggs.
More than a dozen of the chocolate treats were presented to residents at the assembly.
Debbie Smith, home manager at Simonsfield Care Home, said: “The school teachers and children were very keen to show our residents all the eggs entered into their egg decoration competition.
“All the residents who went thoroughly enjoyed the assembly and talking to the children. Resident Emma Adams, in particular, got very emotional and had a little cry.
“We would like to say a huge thank you to the school for inviting our residents to attend their Easter assembly and also for the generous donation of Easter eggs.
“The residents will be enjoying those with their afternoon tea.”
