Festive cheer for Age UK

STUDENTS from Harrogate College have been helping to give older people some festive cheer.

Following a Christmas lunch at Knaresborough Age UK Day Centre, they handed out food hampers they had made.

The students, who all have learning difficulties and disabilities, had raised money through a series of events including a coffee morning, where they made and sold home-made cakes as well as offering a “chill-out room”.

Student Jade Dunn said: “It was great to see the project end successfully and see all the senior citizens smile and have a Merry Christmas.”
