Clarence Park Nursing Home residents filled shoeboxes with tasty treats, gifts and toys to give to children during the festive season.
Pupils 'loved' the presents they received at an after-school club, where they could also meet Santa, at St Paul's Church in Weston.
The care home set up the scheme as a way of thanking the church for its help throughout the year.
Group leader of after-school group Super Sonic, Ben Notley, said: "I'm overwhelmed by the home's generosity and kindness.
"This will make such a difference to the children who attend our club.

Clarence Park said it has seen a 'significant improvement' in its residents' self-esteem, confidence and wellbeing since they started attending groups and services at the church.
