Beech House resident is young friend's special guest at graduation

Today was a very special day for Betty, a resident at Beech House Care Home in Barton-upon-Humber.

In recent weeks Betty and other residents have been invited to a Rhyme Challenge with the local primary school, taking part in activities with the children and hearing their new nursery rhymes and teaching them the old ones. 

Last week the home received a call from the school to say that one of the young participants had asked his mother if Betty could go to his graduation today at school.  Betty was thrilled to be asked and attended the event, which she thoroughly enjoyed. 

The home is now planning a party with the children and family and friends to celebrate the Rhyme Challenge.

Home Manager Alison Hudspeth-Lamb said:

"The project has been a really good experience and the residents and children have really enjoyed it, building lovely relationships and friendships.  

"It was so nice to see Betty happy and engaged with the graduation - waving and blowing kisses to all the children.  We're looking forward to our party and celebrating the coming together of two generations."
