A community minded 19-year-old Yarmouth student has been breaking down the age barriers at a residential home.
Cassy Hamilton has set up the Become Wiser Younger volunteer scheme at the Burgh House Residential Home for the Elderly in Burgh Castle to encourage the young and old to mix.
Cassy and other Yarmouth College students have helped organise a series of fun activities at the home, including a trip to the Hippodrome Circus and nail painting
In the latest stage of the scheme the art and design student had handed over five bountiful planters to the home's 32 residents.
