Daisy chain links the generations

daisychaindementiaweekThorp22052015

Hundreds of little white flowers were the link between two generations separated by a world war as they created a daisy chain together. Pupils at Caston Primary School and residents from Thorp House care home, in Griston, came together to create a daisy chain to help raise awareness for dementia.   

Residents at Thorp House had spent two days linking flowers together before they were brought to the school to be joined by those made by the children.   The idea came about as a way to mark Dementia Awareness Week. Headteacher Laura Sproston said: "The home asked if the children would be interested in joining in and I thought it would be a very good idea.   

It is an opportunity to teach them about dementia and how difficult it can be. We have had an assembly and they have talked about family members they know who have been forgetful or who have been at Thorp House." All 52 pupils at the school took part in the effort to create the biggest daisy chain they could, before being joined by the care home residents.
