A couple from Doncaster, who have helped and supported over 100 children as foster carers, were this week praised for their life-long commitment as they retire from fostering aged 80 and 81.

Ian and Eileen Lindley first began fostering in 1992 and have provided a home to children who cannot live with their birth families ever since.

As specialist foster carers they have supported vulnerable children facing a range of challenging circumstances, welcoming all into their care and significantly improving their life chances.

A cracking Easter is on the cards for children in care thanks to the generosity of staff and customers of funeral directors, J Steadman and Sons, of Balby and Bentley.

Since the company hatched their plan for their annual Easter egg collection more than 80 chocolate eggs have been donated.

They have kindly handed over their clutch to the Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, which will distribute the eggs around their six children’s homes.

“Excellent team work taken place between YOS/16+; it has shown that when we work together it can definitely help our young people and make the difference.”
