Children have been bringing Christmas to residents at a Jersey care home.

For the last few weeks, students from Mont Nicolle school have been singing festive songs at Silver Springs Care Home.

Pupils have also been making decorations to give to residents and to hang on the home's Christmas Tree.

It has given them an opportunity to speak with residents and make new friends on their weekly visits and staff say the experience has had a positive effect on them.

We've noticed over the past couple of weeks a real difference in their confidence. They're wanting to talk about their families and really just come and share. They've shared stories, pictures from their homes and lovely singing.
