Ten Polish students on work placement at Donisthorpe Hall

Ten Polish students are on a three-month work placement at Donisthorpe Hall. Carol Whitehead, the home's chief executive officer, said of the EC-funded scheme: "The programme will give young people an insight into care of the elderly and the opportunity to live and work in another country." This is the second group to take part in the initiative. Two students completed the scheme in June and one of the duo is now a care assistant at the home.
