Hilltop Manor Care Home in Tunstall transformed into an art studio as residents welcomed the Beth Johnson Foundation in for an Art Therapy session.
Kathleen Barcroft, Home Manager, said: “14 of our residents became budding artists during the session and had a lovely time. Once the painting and more importantly the drying was out of the way, the Beth Johnson Foundation asked us if they could take the paintings away to be judged by their chairman – as part of their on-going art competition.
“Naturally, our residents were delighted to enter into a competition. A week or so later we got the results with two of our residents, Dorothy Poyser and Ida Pate coming securing first and second place respectively.
“To commend the residents for their hard work, the Beth Johnson Foundation framed the winning pictures and presented them back to the residents. They also donated money to the residents’ fund and provided some items for our residents to ease stress and relax.”
