PUPILS at St Patrick’s Primary School have shown exemplary goodwill this December by spreading a message of hope and love all across the community.

Young people from P5, P6 and P7 visited the Glennie House and Berryknowe care homes to leave gifts of flowers and Christmas wreaths donated by the Tesco store in Auchinleck.

The pupils also wrote special messages to the residents, who, along with staff, were delighted to welcome them at the front door.

A spokesperson for St Patrick’s Primary said: “We look forward to the time when we can visit and spend time in person with the residents.”
