The care home, which is based on Housley Lane in the city, welcomed the 10th Sheffield (Parson Cross) Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, who donated food for Christmas hampers and helped residents make the gifts through the ‘A Million Hands’ campaign.
A Million Hands is a Scouts initiative, which aims to support social issues by building lasting relationships within local communities.
Jayne Vickers, home manager at Silver Lodge, said: “We were delighted to welcome the Cubs and Beavers to the home, which was a great experience for our residents. Christmas is a time of giving and it is always nice to engage with the community and give our residents the opportunity to meet with guests and take part in activities. Hopefully the children took a lot away from the visit and it supported their campaign, which is an excellent initiative.
“I would like to thank the 10th Sheffield (Parson Cross) Scouts, Cubs and Beavers for their visit and for donating the food, which was a really nice gesture. We will look forward to welcoming the youngsters back, as we build on this very positive start to what will be a lasting relationship.”
