QE’s Travel and Tourism Students Spread Easter CheerDate Posted: 29/03/2022 | Posted In: Latest news
Second year Travel and Tourism students QE have planned and delivered an Easter themed activity morning for residents of Abbeyfield Darlington. The session began with students and residents getting green fingered and planting bulbs before the group made cards to celebrate Easter. The room was filled with lively chat throughout the visit as residents told stories from when they were young, including their time during the War and happier occasions when they would attend dances.
Student, Abbie Hetherington, comments: ‘It was brilliant to hear about all of the different things that the residents used to get up to when they were our age and they enjoyed listening to our stories too. The dances sound like great fun and our time together flew over!’ Julie Vickerman, teacher of Travel and Tourism at QE, adds: ‘Both the students and residents had a lovely morning. It was nice that the two generations were able to meet and spend time together as it is not often that this happens. The morning ended with the residents having some planted bulbs and a homemade Easter card for a friend or relative.’
