Stamford School host the Evergreen Care Trust
Stamford School hosted a tea party on behalf of The Evergreen Care Trust last week. The Evergreen Care Trust is a local charity which provides services for the elderly in order to keep them independent for as long as possible. Their services include communal lunches, soup-runs, befriending and a welcome home service for those who are discharged from hospital.
The students invited local residents to enjoy an afternoon of food and entertainment. There were around 60 guests in total, many of whom were residents of South Kesteven District care homes. They enjoyed some lovely entertainment from four Year 10 students, Fraser Norton, Declan Spaine, Ben Crick and William Whitehouse, who played songs including Let It Be and Sweet Child of Mine.
Helen Chew, charity co-ordinator at Stamford School, said “The event was very successful and it was lovely to see how charming our young charity prefects were with our guests.”
Matthew Pennill, a Year 13 from Stamford School, said “I think all of us who had the opportunity to sit and talk to the guests learnt a lot from what they had to say, and we were lucky to hear of the varied and colourful lives they have lived. I hope next year's event will be an even greater success.”
