Gemma Curtis, from Florence House, said: “Mr Lightfoot wrote on Facebook that he wanted to donate a bird feeder to a care home that helped people suffering from dementia, so we applied and won.

“We were really pleased . It is now in the garden at the back so that residents can sit and watch the birds come and go from the dining room or from their bedrooms.

“Residents love being in the garden so it is something they can enjoy all year round.”
