 Elderly paint and don Pudsey shirts for Children in Need

Elderly paint and don Pudsey shirts for Children in Need

By 20th November, 2017 Articles No Comments

TREND setting elderly residents have been painting their own polka dot t-shirts to raise funds for Children in Need.

Staff and residents have been taking part in fundraising activities at Ingleby Care Home, in Ingleby Barwick, Stockton-on-Tees.

Alongside the Pudsey t-shirt painting, they also baked and decorated Children in Need shortbread and cupcakes and wore onesies and pyjamas for the day.

They collected £80 in total.

Kirsty Walsh, activities coordinator at Ingleby Care Home, said: “We wanted to do something a bit different and we haven’t done t-shirt or fabric painting before.

“It was a memorable experience and the ladies loved it.

“One resident in particular, Joyce Marsay, who is a very elegant lady, had so much fun she’s decided to set a new trend and thinks everyone should wear Pudsey shirts.”
