On 12 December, a group of Lower IV and Lower VI students went to the Lakeside Care Home to deliver Christmas cards. The letters were made by students in Card Club run by the ‘Letters Against Isolation’ group who are an offshoot of Amnesty Society. It was so rewarding to get to meet the residents and to watch them enjoying the letters, pictures and titbits included in the cards.
Altogether we were able to deliver 70 cards to residents which is an amazing number that we are very proud of. The LAI team was so impressed and grateful to everyone who came along (students and staff) to make cards on the two lunchtime sessions last term.
Speaking with one of the staff at the care home, we are hoping to make a long term connection with Lakeside and write more letters at other times of the year such as Easter and Valentine’s day. The card club will be resuming soon so do keep an eye out for more!
