1:00pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
Kindhearted schoolchildren have been brightening people’s days by delivery bouquets of flowers.
Pupils at Richard de Clare Primary School in Parsonage Street, Halstead, celebrated the harvest with their annual flower festival last Friday.
Headteacher Sarah Donnelly said: “After a celebratory assembly in school Year 6 pupils distributed flowers, kindly donated by the school community, to older folk around the town.
“As well as flowers for residential homes and the day centre, families were able to nominate an elderly, sick or deserving recipient for bouquets of flowers.
“The children all enjoyed delivering the flowers with huge smiles and many of the recipients commented on the kindness of those giving.
“It was a really touching activity for young and old alike.”
