KIND-hearted kids got their hands dirty transforming a garden for care home residents.
Pupils from Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary School decided to brighten the garden at Broadacres Care Home, on nearby Naylor Street, which cares for elderly people and those living with dementia.
After raising money with a bake sale and a non-uniform day, they set to work painting pots and planting flowers for residents to enjoy, and giving benches in the garden a new lick of paint.
Year 5 teacher Philippa Benton said: “We just wanted to make it colourful and multi-sensory.”
Helen Walker, the home’s manager, said: “It’s a wonderful project and we're really grateful to the school and pupils for choosing Broadacres.”
Rawmarsh Ashwood also held its summer fair a week before the end of term, with attractions including hook-a-duck, glitter tattoos and the chance to meet a Despicable Me Minion.
