Corrections officers give hampers to seniors

Corrections officers have presented hampers of food to residents at the Francis Telford Nursing Home.

The staff visited the home in Paget on New Year's Eve to donate presents as well as festive hampers of non perishable food.

The donation was part of the department's annual food drive to help seniors in the community and also involved providing gifts to retired corrections officers.

Yvette Brown, a social worker for the department, said: “The food drive that is held annually is seen as an ideal way of giving back to our community.

“It helps members of staff that work diligently behind the gates, not only to provide services to incarcerated men and women but to provide a greater service to seniors who paved the way for us.”
