A group of Wisbech students have given up their time to transform one of Fenland’s care homes by giving it a fresh makeover.
The College of West Anglia (CWA) pupils from the Wisbech campus are working hard to maintain the building and the grounds of Orchard House Care Home in the town.
Ten students from both construction and painting and decorating courses got involved after the care home's administrator, Kayleigh Rudland, got in touch.
Maxine Bain, care home manager, said: "The students displayed great enthusiasm, kindness and passion towards the residents.
"They worked tremendously as a team to transform the resident's rooms and communal areas."
