Forest Hill residents have created a video to thank parishioners from Trinity Presbyterian Church for their generosity during the holiday season.

Residents wanted an opportunity to show their gratitude, so life enrichment co-ordinator Craig Forrest shot a video of residents expressing their appreciation. Forest Hill director of care John Donzil posted the video on YouTube.

Craig recently went to Trinity Presbyterian Church during a service to play the video for parishioners and to personally thank them for their kindness.
