North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Screen Shot 2015-11-04 at 10.38.11TEENAGE volunteers from a Middlesbrough FC youth scheme have been entertaining elderly residents at a Stockton-on-Tees care home.

Mandale House Care Home, on Acklam Road in Thornaby, welcomed over a dozen volunteers from the football club’s National Citizenship Scheme.

The group – all aged between 16 and 17 – spent several hours at the home engaging with the residents.

Two groups played dominoes and bingo and another painted the home’s ladies’ nails.

A sing-along was led by one of the youth group’s members and others cleaned the outside of the premises.

Sarah Robinson, Activity Coordinator at Mandale House Care Home, said: “Engaging with young people has an incredibly positive effect on our residents. It can lift them for days.

“The young people of the Middlesbrough FC National Citizenship Scheme should be immensely proud of their voluntary work and we can’t thank them enough for coming to see us at Mandale House Care Home. We hope to see them again in future.”
