RAF Waddington team transforms Lincoln care home garden

A great act of kindness

RAF volunteers are transforming the garden at a Lincoln care home to bring joy to the elderly residents.

Altham Court, a HC-One Care Home, invited the handy RAF Waddington team to help revamp the garden in time for the summer.

They will visit the care home every two weeks and have already had a big impact on the residents, who have seen the garden become much more colourful.

The team at Altham Court were keen to show their appreciation to the RAF by providing them with bacon rolls and other snacks throughout the day.

Maureen Wilkinson, a resident at Altham Court, said: “I really enjoyed helping out with the garden transformation. It was a lovely, pleasant morning and I cannot wait to get back out there to help.”

Anna Livsey, home manager, said: “The whole team at Altham Court are delighted that the RAF has volunteered their time to assist with our garden project, which will really enhance the wellbeing of our residents.

“There has been a lovely buzz around the home each time the RAF volunteers have arrived. It really has been wonderful to have the community come together for such a great act of kindness.”
