St John Ambulance Ely’s youth team (cadets and badgers) got together to make a poster to say thank you to local carers after one of its teenager members came up with the idea.

Seventeen-year-old Gao Qu wanted to thank the carers for all their hard work as she felt they were not getting enough praise.

Katrina Cattani, youth services manager at St John Ambulance Ely, said: “The posters were then hand-delivered to a number of them in the region.”

The young cadets visited these care homes: Soham Lodge and Fair Haven in Soham as well as Vera James, Lily House and The Orchards in Ely.
