RESIDENTS of a Sunderland care home had a whale of a time at the Aquatic Centre.

Mary Eastern, Jean Colling and Pat Heslop are among those from Glenholme House care home, in Roker, who prove that age is no barrier to keeping fit and having fun.

Manager Kelly Watt said: “Aside from it being a lot of fun for the residents, swimming is great for health and wellbeing, which is very important when people get to this stage of their lives.”
