Care Mail

During this period of lockdown, we are aware that many elderly people who live in our area may not be getting the regular visits they are used to from friends and family.

Equally, we are also aware that there are many young people who currently have plenty of time on their hands. 

So we thought we'd put two and two together.

If you work in a local care home and would like local children to write a letter to your residents during this period, leave your details below and we'll add you to our on-line list. You may also be able to show your residents short videos of children singing songs or telling jokes etc. If you can accept those via email, add an email address into the contact details too.

If you can accept and play short videos of children singing/telling jokes leave an email address here

Care Homes to write to or email (kids - write a letter, send a letter by email or even send the residents a video of you singing or telling them a joke!)
