After the phenomenal response to last year’s appeal over 2500 cards were delivered to residents in care homes across Wiltshire and Swindon.
Members of the public are again invited to send Christmas cards that will be collected and taken to residents in local care homes. For many residents this will be the only card they receive from someone in the community this year.
To be part of something that shows how much we care is really special and the cards, their kind words and warm wishes make a world of difference to the lives of these wonderful people.
Please send cards to: Care Home Volunteers c/o Retain Healthcare, 7 Industry Park, Cricketts Lane, Chippenham, SN15 3EQ to reach us by December 13th, many thanks.
Care Home Volunteers (CHV) recruits, trains and supports volunteer befrienders who spend time with residents in care homes.
Many of the people befriended have no other visitors. During the pandemic CHV volunteers have written over 1500 cards to residents, taken part in virtual visits and fundraised to provide over 50 tablet devices to care homes so that residents can have virtual visits with their friends, families and Befrienders.
