Six pupils at Ormiston Sudbury Academy laid on Christmas dinner for 24 Playford Court residents as part of their Prince’s Trust XL course on Monday afternoon.

Lillian Richards, who turns 102 on Christmas Eve, said: “It is absolutely brilliant. The pupils have been very good and done us proud. None of this would be possible without [home manager] Kathy Sergeant, she puts on so much and looks after us.”

This was the second year the school had hosted the residents for the special lunch.
