Care Home Volunteers: Keeping in touch with Care Home Residents in 2020

31st March 2021, 9:55am | By Marc Read |

Since March ’20 Care Home Volunteers have sent over 1,200 cards to care home residents across Wiltshire and Swindon. Some volunteers have been writing individually to people they usually visit, others send general greetings cards, for staff to share with those who’d most benefit. I’ve attached a few photos of some of the lovely, thoughtful cards our volunteers have sent, which often include photos, poems, drawings or puzzles.
