Churches in Kendal came together to knit over 700 crosses for care home residents for Easter.

There were so many that some crosses were also delivered to sheltered housing complexes, local children, assisted living complexes and Vicarage Park School.

Organiser and Anna Chaplain at Holy Trinity Parish Church ,Beverley Moore, said: "We wanted to show the love of God to all at Easter and to share God’s love for us all and the sacrifice that Jesus gave for our sins, his death on the cross.

"We wanted to let the residents know that they are held in the heart of our communities, not forgotten by being kept away from families and friends during the pandemic.

"Community, coming together, helping one another, however small, these steps currently must surely be another way of getting through this pandemic."
