Young people exceeded all expectations when they raised money for a care home for older people.

The group, run by Youth Connexions, had decided they would like to raise money for The Mead care home in Castleford Close after hearing about the regular events put on for the residents, such as outings and arts and crafts groups.

The young people held a fundraising event in May, selling items they had crafted such as ‘scoobies’ and loom bands, as well as collected items such as books, and raised more than £150.

Caroline Perkis, who works at the Quantum Care Home, said: “This is an amazing amount and will contribute to some extra activities for our residents, which will make a difference to them. I am chuffed to bits.”

Youth Connexions and the group presented The Mead with a cheque on Thursday.

Youth Worker Manju Jnagal, who leads the project, added: “The young women are working towards an AQA accreditation in fundraising, which will mean the activity is not only contributing to an incredibly worthwhile cause, but will also be a good addition to their CVs. I am so proud of them."
