Kind-hearted children at a special needs Scout group have created and shared inspirational artwork with our Winchester dementia care home, St Catherines View.

Nine members of the Osborne Scouts painted around 50 colourful pebbles as sensory gifts for residents.

The children, who all attend the city’s Osborne School, decorated their stones with acrylic paintings of rainbows, faces, flowers, butterflies and other designs.

St Catherines View  received the pebbles  from Scout Group Leader Lisa Massey and her son Barnaby Pearce.

The pebbles were placed around the garden, giving residents the opportunity to discuss their feel, weight, shape and colour.

Companionship Team Member Laura Sheldrake said: “Our residents are enjoying seeing the brightly coloured pebbles. It’s so lovely to know that the Scouts have been thinking about us.”
