VICTORIA Point's June Francis may be vision-impaired but that has not stopped her making her own Christmas decorations to spread the festive cheer.
Ms Francis, who lives at Adventist Retirement Village, has macular degeneration and crafted four waist-high papier mache snowmen mostly by feel.
Decorated with googly eyes, fake eyelashes, hats, scarves, tinsel and other festive ornaments, the snowmen have been placed around the facility to bring residents a little extra Christmas cheer.
"It's amazing, what she's been able to do," lifestyle officer Rose Smith said.
Ms Francis also made a table-top decoration with 11 smaller snowmen.
Students from Brisbane Adventist College who visited the retirement village in November were impressed by Mrs Francis' hard work.
During their visit, they also sat in on the Circle of Men, took part in aromatherapy sessions and walked around the lake with residents.
"The students' youthful enthusiasm and energy brought a ray of sunshine into residents' lives for the afternoon," Ms Smith said.
She said she hoped the students would visit again in 2020.
"This is an exciting new relationship bridging the generations, but more importantly bringing much joy to our residents," she said.
