KIND-HEARTED teenagers helped bring some festive cheer to elderly folk in Matlock.

The sixth-form students from Highfields School headed for Denefields Court sheltered accommodation, just off St Giles Road, on early Monday evening where they organised a Christmas party for the residents.

They students help put them into the festive spirit by playing music, served them up seasonal treats such as mince pies and organised a quiz.
