Middlesbrough FC volunteers Entertain Care Home Residents

teeside-nursingDOZENS of teenagers have volunteered their time to help elderly Teesside care home residents.

The Gables Care Home, on Highfield Road, welcomed over 30 volunteers from Middlesbrough FC Community Foundation.

The group – all aged between 16 and 18 – spent two days at the home renovating the garden furniture and socialising with the residents.

They played music, painted nails, took part in games, shared stories and sold cakes to visitors and staff.

Naaila Rehman, activities coordinator at The Gables Care Home, said: “We’re extremely grateful to the Middlesbrough FC Community Foundation for visiting the home.

“Our residents had a brilliant time and really enjoyed the company of the young volunteers. We hope to see them again in future.”
