Senior Citizens' Christmas Party

A team of volunteers from Year 12 and 13 welcomed 30 pensioners from two local sheltered housing units, Laburnam Court and Hamilton Court in Leighton Buzzard, to the Sixth Form Common room just before Christmas.

As well as a lavish buffet tea, guests were treated to live musical performances, carol singing, bingo and a quiz.

Students had fundraised in the preceding weeks in order to pay for the event, which has now become a much enjoyed annual tradition.

“This year’s event was particularly well attended and the atmosphere was fantastic.” Said Mr Downey, Director of Sixth Form.  “Students are aware that this can be a lonely time of year for some older members of the community and really enjoy the chance to offer them an afternoon of fun and good company.  It’s always rewarding - they get as much out of is as the guests do.”
