Five children aged between seven and 12 took time out from their summer holiday last Thursday to entertain residents and visitors at the Moors Care Centre.
The children, who are taking part in the Lifestyle Challenge, kept everyone happy with dancing, singing and games of bingo as part of their Vintage Afternoon Tea.
Kiera Greasley, 12, and Sophia Nuttall, 12, attend Ripon Grammar School, while Naomi Greasley, 10, and Owen Greasley, 7, attend Ripon Cathedral School.
Millie Nuttall, 10, attends Dishforth Primary School.
The Lifestyle team will be visiting every few weeks to play games with the residents and continue to help within the home.
The children signed up for the Lifestyle challenge in July, and after picking their team name The Northern Ninjas they met to decide what to do within the community.
The Northern Ninjas decided to try and combat loneliness in the elderly community by holding an ambitious afternoon of entertainment.
The children managed to raise £90 from donations which will be spent on new board games for the residents.
The Northern Ninjas’ adult advisor Katherine Sands said: “The children have worked extremely hard throughout the summer, giving up their time to create an afternoon of entertainment that was well planned and turned out to be a total success.
“There was a terrific turnout for the event and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.”
