SCHOOLCHILDREN and members of a dementia support group joined together in a project to help bridge the generation gap.

The Intergenerational Project, launched by the Chrysalis dementia support group in Hexham, has been working with children from Chollerton First School.

Throughout November and December, they took part in a Christmas art project, meeting in the Adapt cafe at Hexham’s Adapt Enterprise Hub.

Together they created Christmas tree murals, invented their own board games, marbled plain paper to make Christmas decorations and crafted snowmen.

The project has been working with different schools throughout the year to help young people and Chrysalis members get to know each other and learn from one another.
