Broughton House Veterans watched in delight from inside the Stoller Wing as pupils of The Heys School in Prestwich showed them poppy wreaths they have prepared for Remembrance Week.

The wreaths have now been laid at the Prestwich cenotaph.

Broughton House is being supported by The Heys School through a series of fundraising events. During the first lockdown, pupils raised residents’ spirits by writing letters to them in a pen-pal initiative.

Fundraising & Marketing Manager, Rhys Edwards, said:

“We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of The Heys School, our residents love seeing them and hearing about what they’ve been up to.”

“We look forward to showing students the first phase of our redevelopment when Government Guidelines allow.”
