Students rounded off a voluntary placement at a Sheffield care home, with a variety performance for its residents.

The students, from Firth Park Academy, tried their hand at acting, singing, dancing and comedy as they stepped into the spotlight for the show at Sanctuary Park View Residential Care Home.

The event, funded by Sanctuary Housing, was part of the Made in Sheffield Cultural Amabassadors programme - a project from the Cutlers’ Company supporting young people to develop skills, character and knowledge for future employment.

The show was the culmination of a series of volunteering placements at the care home, which has seen the Firth Park Cultural Ambassadors get to know the residents and organise activities for them to take part in, including creating Easter cards and baking cakes.

Firth Park Cultural Ambassador Caitlin Jubb said: “Over the weeks we have really got to know the residents and what they like to do. I hope they have enjoyed themselves and we have got so much out of the volunteering placements, they’ve been a really valuable opportunity to interact with people of different ages.”
