School organises Christmas party for Millfield residents

Residents of Millfield Care Home in Heywood, Greater Manchester, enjoyed a festive party organised by secondary school pupils at the nearby Siddal Moor Sports College.

Food, entertainment and gifts were laid on for the eight residents who travelled to the college by minibus.

Our admin officer, Sheree, said: “The school organises a party for our residents every year. It’s a fantastic event.

“The pupils give us some lovely gifts such as poinsettia plants that the residents enjoy displaying in their rooms. They love to be VIPs for the day, it’s a real treat.”

Residents have also been getting into the festive spirit by helping to decorate the eight Christmas trees across the four units of Millfield. Each unit is having its own in-house party, complete with celebratory food and singers.
