Pupils from Oakham School have been visiting Tixover House Care Home every Friday during term time to play croquet with the residents.

Headmaster Nigel Lashbrook said the volunteer project was not only rewarding for pupils but making a huge difference to the residents. He added: “Through this focused activity, pupils learn how to communicate and to connect with people who have different needs. It teaches them valuable life skills such as patience and understanding.”
