Residents at Maids Moreton Hall care home have been reading bedtime stories to children as part of National Storytelling Week.

The care home located on Church Street welcomed primary school children from the local area into the lounge for the reading session.

The Bedtime Stories initiative is run by Care UK to celebrate National Storytelling Week.

The initiative is beneficial to both the residents reading the stories and the children having the opportunity to listen. The campaign aims to allow children growing up without grandparents to not miss out on a magical reading of bedtime stories.

The campaign also include 4 free videos of residents reading the well known tales.

Maids Moreton Hall general manager Ioana Almasan said: “We always enjoy opening our doors to the local community.

“We all remember stories told to us as children, often before bedtime, and find comfort in adulthood in these nostalgic memories.

“Intergenerational relationships and initiatives, just like this one, can be incredibly beneficial to both younger and older people alike and can provide residents with a sense of wellbeing and purpose.”
