Christmas Cards for Care Homes WCS Wells Cathedral Independent School Somerset England

Christmas Cards for Care Homes

Pupils across the School have been drawing, designing, crafting and creating Christmas cards for elderly residents in local care homes. Hundreds of cards were collected by former Mayor of Wells, Philip Welch, on behalf of Wells Dementia Action Alliance. Mr Welch expressed his gratitude towards the pupils and their efforts, explaining that “Christmas can be such a difficult time for people with dementia and other mental health issues” and thanking them for their time; “Wells Cathedral School’s support is greatly appreciated.”

“Please warmly thank your pupils for the wonderful Christmas cards they made for our three local care homes. There were 273 cards in total and every resident at Fletcher House, Crandon Springs and Torrwood has received one. There were also enough left over for the clients at Heads Up and The Lawrence Centre, two local charities that support people living with dementia and other mental health issues.

Your pupils have made a real difference to a huge number of vulnerable people in our community at Christmas, bringing festive cheer at a difficult time for so many of them, not least because of the postal strikes.”
