Six students from Ayesha Community School in Hendon came with their teacher to visit residents of Jewish Care’s Kun Mor and George Kiss Home in Friern Barnet. They met with Jewish Care’s Living Well team manager, Ffion Roberts who arranged for them to run a bingo session for the residents, gave them small gifts and spent time painting nails for residents. The residents have already invited the Ayesha pupils back for tea at the home.
Saqiba Mahood, their teacher who accompanied them on the visit was delighted, she said,
“The girls really enjoyed themselves and had a lovely time. The residents at the home were so friendly and cooperative and the girls were very happy with the visit. Ayesha Community School would like to thank everyone involved at Jewish Care. We look forward to organising a trip again in the future.”
Simon Morris, Chief Executive, Jewish Care commented;
“I happened to visiting the home on a day that the pupils from Ayesha Community School were volunteering. It was wonderful to see the pupils engaging with the residents – a great example of a meaningful intergenerational, multi-cultural exchange. We hope this is the start of a long term relationship with the school and welcome any of the girls back should they be looking for volunteer opportunities”.
