CARE home worker and talented artist Christina Calver created a special comic to raise smiles among residents and cash for charity.
The 22 year old who works at Barchester's Rose Lodge care home in Wisbech put pen to paper for Sport Relief.
Christina, of Walpole St Peter, asked residents to write down words to give her inspiration. All the words were collected in a bag and then Christina worked non-stop for 24 hours to produce a stunning piece of work.
She said: "I like drawing comics as a hobby so I thought it would be good thing to do. I was expecting to feel really sluggish and tired as the time went on but once I got into it, it wasn't so bad."
