Volunteers turned out to brighten the lives of older people, with a face-lift at a day centre for those with dementia.
Staff from ReAssure, a life and pensions company, were among those who picked up a paint brush to decorate the kitchen, dining room and reception area of The Marion Road Centre at the weekend.
The centre offers care for people with dementia, cognitive stimulation therapy and a home-cooked lunch.
Manager Alison Bessey said: 'People attending the centre helped us choose the colours, and the redecoration has been based on the latest research, using plain and strongly contrasting colours, which are also quite restful.'
