TOTS joined pensioners at a Greenock care home for a cracking Easter event.

Beautiful bonnets were on display as the children from Madeira Nursery visited Glenfield Care Home over the Easter holidays.

Residents at the home, which is run by Greenock Medical Aid Society, joined in the fun as they watched the little ones enjoy an Easter egg hunt.

Morag McMillan, Glenfield’s activity co-ordinator, said the children really cheered up the residents.

She said: “We hid around 60 eggs around the premises which they then had to gather up. The children then went outside and had the chance to see our chickens.

“Everyone had a great time.

“As soon as the children come in, you can see big smiles on the residents’ faces.  Their arrival really brightened the place up for everyone.”

Nicola Jane Orr, nursery manager, said the kids had enjoyed a brilliant time.

She said: “The group we brought along today have all had a great day. They loved the Easter egg hunt and they also enjoyed going out to see the chickens.

“It’s lovely to have a wee link with the community and we would like to thank Glenfield for inviting us along.”

Resident Phoebe Kerr, 92, said the children brought joy to the home.

She said: “It makes us so happy to see the children.

“It’s a great treat for us.”

Diana Knox, a volunteer at the home, was also there to help out.

She said: “We would like to thank Kerris and her team from the Port Glasgow Tesco Extra store for donating the Easter bags to the children and also the team at the Co-op in Eldon Street for donating Easter eggs for the residents.”

Staff at the home were also keen to thank all the volunteers who helped the residents make their bonnets.
