Young people from Greenisland Youth Centre have been working with Greenisland Abbeyfield and Wesley Fold as part of an intergenerational project.

During the summer programme, Youth Support Worker Dawn Hart supervised and encouraged the young people to work on the centre’s allotment.

They were able to produce winter vegetables that were shared between the residents at the fold and other pensioners within the community.

The group’s next event is an afternoon tea at the fold, with cakes and buns baked by the young people.
