When Birch Green Care Home heard that Woodlands Community Primary School in Skelmersdale had been broken into we knew we wanted to help.
Pupils and staff from Woodlands School have been regular visitors to us at Birch Green, with the school’s Glee Club stopping by to entertain us.
We even had a visit from 300 children last year when they set up in our car park to sing songs for the Olympics.
When we heard about the break-in, staff Donna Matthews and Claire West, who have children attending the school, organised a collection and we recently handed the funds over.
So we were very touched indeed when the school presented us with a plant to say thank you. It’s now planted in our remembrance garden where everyone can enjoy it.
