A Wisbech care home has sponsored football kits for Thomas Clarkson Academy’s Year 9 football team.
Three Dove Court residents visited the school to see the youngsters in action, along with the home’s activities coordinators, Michael and Joanne.
Care home residents enjoyed a trip to see the kits in action, when they went to watch the Year 9 team play its first match in its new kit.
The team at Thomas Clarkson Academy was chosen as the recipient of the dementia care facility’s sponsorship because of residents’ link to the school.
Several of the home’s residents have grandchildren and great grandchildren who attend or have attended the academy.
