ELDERLY residents have expressed their gratitude to two school pupils after a week working at their care home.
15-year-olds Hannah Pears and Molly Ratcliff supported staff and spent time with residents living at Pelton Grange Care Home, in Pelton, County Durham.
The pupils from North Durham Academy, in Stanley, provided support with the tea trolley and dining, general housekeeping and social activities.
Hannah said: “I had a great week. I had a lot of fun listening to the stories of the residents.”
Molly added: “I never thought about what it was like in a care home. It was nice to see the residents had so much choice.”
