Foster children have been spending time with care home residents as part of a scheme to bring young and elderly together.
The children from fostering agency Team Fostering have been visiting Broadacres Care Home, in Rotherham, as part of the initiative.
They spent several hours with the residents over the festive period and the home has invited them back for future events and activities.
The young and elderly played board games, pass the parcel, read poems and books together, performed songs and took part in a quiz.
Resident Iris Oldfield, 89, said: “I don’t have a young family so I was absolutely delighted to spend time with the young children.”
