Fire Cadets based in Sandyford will be teaming up with Port Vale Football Club player Nathan Smith tomorrow (wed) as part of a community project.

"We are delighted that Port Vale Football Club is supporting this worthwhile project and that Asda has donated plants which will be used to brighten up the garden. The young people have been giving up their spare time and have worked incredibly hard during the Easter break to make a real difference to the care home's residents."

What exactly is a fire door?. Put simply, it's a door that is designed to stop a fire spreading throughout the building. Coupled with other measures such as smoke alarms it should allow those inside the building to escape safely.

The defender will be joining 10 young people, aged 14 - 17, while they are giving the garden at the Agnes and Arthur Care Home in Bradeley a facelift.

They are transforming the grounds to make them more relaxing and inviting so that the residents - some of whom have dementia or learning difficulties - can enjoy spending time outside.

Asda in Tunstall provided plants for the project after the Fire Cadets took part in a sponsored bag pack at the store to help raise money for equipment.

Fire Cadets Instructor Jess Patten said: "We are delighted that Port Vale Football Club is supporting this worthwhile project and that Asda has donated plants which will be used to brighten up the garden.

"The young people have been giving up their spare time and have worked incredibly hard during the Easter break to make a real difference to the care home's residents. They have really spruced up the garden which I am sure will have a positive impact on the quality of life of those who use it in the summer months."

 A spokesperson from Port Vale Football Club said: "The Club are always looking for ways to help in the community and this project is more than worthwhile.

"We're happy to be involved and hope that the residents of the Agnes and Arthur Care Home are happy with the final outcome."

Hanley Fire Cadets also revamped the garden at North Shelton Community Centre last week.

The venue re-opened in 2013 and is being managed by 'The Foundation', a non-profit organisation which relies on donations and grants.

The facility provides a safe place for older people to meet and it could also benefit pupils at St Marks Etruscan School who may use it for extra-curricular activities in the future.
