Residents at a care home have a bright new room thanks to the efforts of a team from the Prince’s Trust programme.

A team of 16 to 19-year-olds from Corby and Oundle have been taking part in the programme, and for their community project they revamped a room at Glenmoor House care home in Rockingham Road.

The 10-day project finished on Friday, when the garden-themed sensory room was opened to residents.

It features artwork and canvases created by the students, and all the materials were paid for with money they had raised during other parts of the programme.

They have been working from 9am to 4.30pm each day.

Team member Ashleigh Sturrock, 17, said: “Some of them can’t move very well so we are bringing the garden to them, to stimulate their minds. I have loved it. It has really helped us all.”

Team leader Trudy Ancliffe said: “They have done absolutely fantastically. They have overcome barriers and difficulties as a team and they have done extremely well.”
