As part of the school’s Community Programme, Seaford College recently held a Love Lunch for residents of local care homes. Seaford students and staff regularly visit the care homes as part of their weekly community activities.
Year 12 pupil Shannon Greenwood said: “Staff from the care homes and Seaford College acted as chauffeurs for the afternoon, bringing our guests to the school. Upon arrival, each minibus was greeted by smiling students who helped each resident to be seated at their table.
“All the residents were very chatty and were complimentary about the wonderful architecture of our Mansion House. One gentleman in particular was amazed at the detail within the beams and on the balcony in the dining room. Seb Azimi and Danny Westcott charmed the ladies from Rotherlea Care Home, who they visit them once a week for a chat.
“The lunch was a great success. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed their food. The ladies were concerned about not being able to eat it all as they didn’t want to waste anything, something I think my generation needs to pick up on! We had a couple of birthdays and even a wedding anniversary among the guests.
“Then Danny performed on his guitar and Yolanda sang Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley. It was a beautiful rendition that had the whole room singing along, as well as shedding a few tears, and was a lovely way to end the afternoon!”
