Adapted from a suggestion sent in by Craig Murray
This task is aimed at breaking down barriers between younger people and pensioners and young people going into their ‘stretch zone’.
Without telling the group, arrange in advance for the group to be able to visit a retirement home. Then give the group or each team 2 hours to prepare an activity to do for a visit at the retirement home.
Either at the end of 2 hours or at the next meeting, visit the home for when it was planned for and ask the group to talk to the residents and carry out the activity they had planned.
