Residents and staff at a Norfolk care home are touched to have been thought of at Christmas after receiving cards from primary school children.
Youngsters across Norfolk and Waveney have helped to put smiles on more than 1,600 care home residents' faces over the festive period as part of the EDP and Norwich Evening News' Christmas Cards to Care Homes project.
Some 3,000 cards have been delivered to care home residents and staff in 45 care homes.
The Mayfields Care Home, in Swan Lane, Long Stratton, has 55 residents and received cards from St Mary's Junior School in the town.
Christine Carmichael, admin receptionist, said: "It was lovely, everybody was so pleased, so touched. The residents were pleased the cards were addressed to them by name.
"It was lovely and nice to be thought of."
