Poppy Bentley, a year 9 student at Kirk Hallam Community Academy, has given her time up in the six week summer holidays to come into the Cedars and Larches care home, joining in activities, keeping the residents company and completing a work book about life in a care home.
Poppy said it had kept her busy and she had found it interesting.
Poppy was presented with a certificate of excellence and some gifts by care assistant Trudy Boulton who thanked her for giving up her own time to help in this way.
The home’s activity co-ordinator Alison Richards said: “Poppy worked alongside me, doing various activities including group sessions, armchair exercises, making book markers, cake making, and helping prepare for the home’s summer fayre. She has been in every week for a full day during the six weeks holidays. Poppy is keeping her options open about her future career plans but whatever she chooses, what she has done with us will be a good foundation for her future plans.”
