Care Home Residents Host Afternoon Tea With Pudsey Bear and Local Children

On Thursday 17th November 2011 elderly residents and staff at Walstead Place Care Home, near Haywards Heath, hosted an afternoon tea with Pudsey Bear and children aged six and seven from the Great Walstead School.
 

Children from the Great Walstead School were invited for cake, tea, games, a raffle, and book stall with BBC Children in Need’s official mascot.

Children in Need is the BBC’s UK corporate charity focusing on children and young people who are disadvantaged.

Children in Need’s vision is that every child in the UK has a childhood which is safe, happy, secure, and allows them the chance to reach their potential.

Elderly residents of Walstead Place were invited by Great Walstead School to see the Christmas school play and hoped to return the favour by hosting local children in an exciting afternoon featuring the famous mascot, Pudsey Bear.

Resident, Walstead Place;

“I haven’t felt so young in years! Spending the day with children playing games and eating cake was a complete joy!”

Jacquie, Home Manager said:

“We were so excited to be bringing such a famous children’s icon to our home, and the highlight was seeing the children enjoying themselves with our residents.

“Our residents take so much pride in their home and community and that includes passing on their passion for life to the new generations.

“Pudsey Bear was a real hit with the children, and brought many smiles to the faces of our residents. I hope that the partnership between Walstead Place and Great Walstead School continues for many years to come.”
