A care home has brightened up the lives of schoolchildren by gifting an assortment of handknitted scarves.
Residents at De Lucy House, in Diss, decided to set up a knitting group during lockdown and thought their efforts could benefit youngsters in the local area.
In a bid to keep them warm over autumn and winter, they have donated a number of scarves to pupils at Roydon Primary School.
One of the knitters, Elsie Weston, 88, delivered them to the school where she was greeted by year 1 pupils Darcie and James, both six.
Nikki Clark, activities coordinator at De Lucy House, said: "We know it’s the height of summer but our lovely residents spent lockdown knitting scarves for our friends at Roydon Primary School, ready for the autumn.
