Making Every Moment Count with #colchesterUP Project

We are very proud to announce our involvement in association with FaNs Network and the #colchesterUP campaign to encourage the relationship between the elderly community and the younger generations.

Groups of children from local children’s nurseries ‘Little Beginnings’ and ‘Bambino’s’ will spend a MINIMUM of an hours play and shared learning with  residents at Foxburrow Grange.

The play and shared learning will involve art, making decorations for the Christmas Tree, baking, reading with residents and One to One learning between young and old, using technology such as the Samsung Galaxy Tablet kindly donated by Tesco for this important project. If our pictures are anything to go by, there is even some hairdressing involved too!

We hope to share the children’s visits with you every week via our Facebook page and will keep you updated here with photos and events they are involved with in the future.

We would like to thank the wonderful children for  making us smile on every visit !

And a special thank you to all the groups involved for their hard work and determination to ensure this campaign goes ahead smoothly for the children and the residents at Foxburrow Grange.
