STUDENTS from one of the National Citizen Service projects this summer chose to dedicate their community project to The Wingfield Care Home in Trowbridge.

After several successful bake sales, the students raised enough money to put into fruition their project by creating several wheelchair accessible raised flowerbeds, with carefully chosen plants to attract butterflies and bees into the garden.

The event was followed by an opening ceremony and afternoon tea, where the students were delighted to see residents enjoying the display of colours and textures.

Gail Stone, General Manager at The Wingfield Care Home, said: “The Wingfield always welcomes young members of the community into our Home. It’s great to witness them interact with our residents and giving up their time during the holidays for such a wonderful purpose is admirable.”

The Wingfield care home is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which is committed to delivering personalised care across its care homes and hospitals. The Wingfield provides residential care, nursing care and dementia care for 83 residents from respite care to long term stays.
