A pair of big hearted Doncaster home care workers have gone continental and brought a taste of Italy to people they care for.

Alison Haigh (right) pictured with her colleague Emma Knot and service user, Adrian Waddell, have introduced the annual Virtual Food Cruise into the homes of service users.

The food cruise is an initiative in place across the Hull-based Hica Group care organisation, which sees a new country at the heart of the group’s activities each month and encourages residents to experience the culture of other countries – including their music, food, drink and even their clothes. Alison said pizzas had been cooked and added: “It’s lovely to see the positive impact food cruise and other activities, has had on the people we care for.”
