Care UK’s Priors House, on Old Milverton Lane, welcomed local charity Kissing it Better (KiB) into the home to help the residents and team get into the Easter spirit – and to award them an egg-stra special donation.

On the day, Priors House presented the £400 donation to KiB’s very own Easter bunny – a long-term charity partner of the care home, which brings young and older people together.

KiB has worked alongside Priors House for 8 years, delivering weekly activity sessions at the home, often with the help of a professional singer. They also help the team organise special events that bring young people into the home on a regular basis to encourage intergenerational friendships.
