Roecliffe Relations

Welcome to Roecliffe Relations.

Roecliffe Relations is an amazing project centred around 7 and 8 year olds creating friendships with people at the local nursing home.

Over the last few months, the children in year 3 and 4 have formed lovely bonds with their new penpal at Brighterkind nursing home in Boroughbridge.

Every 2 to 3 weeks, the children walk from school to Boroughbridge to take part in various activities ranging from pet therapy to performing with musical instruments.

The nursing home have been extremely kind and generous with their time and efforts in supporting the children with the extra curricular work they do.

The staff and residents at Brighterkind have also commented on the impact the project has had on them.

Take a look at the pictures below to see the fantastic experiences had by both the children and residents and the rewards it has brought to both generations.


What a wonderful picture. We even got this picture published in the Knaresborough Post!
