A group of Fifth and Sixth Formers visited Thirlestaine Care Home to help them break a Guinness World Record for the world’s largest cream tea party! The initiative was in aid of National Nutrition and Hydration Week, which runs from 14 – 20 March to raise awareness of the importance of nutrition and hydration for patients in care, particularly the elderly. The pupils helped to serve cream teas and chatted to the residents who were very keen to hear about the numerous activities that the pupils get up to at Cheltenham College.
Mr James Stubbert commented, “There was a lovely atmosphere at the party today. The pupils loved talking to the residents about their plans for Easter and serving them tea and scones. The pupils often visit as part of their weekly Community Links activity and we were really grateful to be invited along to help try to break a world record! The residents enjoyed having us too and it was a pleasure to watch our students help others in the community."
