RATTON School pupils have been bringing joy to Sovereign Lodge in Eastbourne.

Healthcare Homes said: “The ladies and gentlemen of Sovereign Lodge in Eastbourne were overjoyed with some lovely letters and Christmas wishes from a local school.

The children aged 12 have taken part in an initiative called ‘classroom to care home’, which enables the students and residents to communicate with each other via letter writing.

Thank you to Ratton School for bridging the inter-generational gap!”
