After the success of the Christmas card appeal we thought we would reach out and launch our postcard appeal, to help our residents remember holidays they went on as children.
Since the project began, we have been overwhelmed with the support from members of the public who responded to our appeal on social media.
We have received around 40 postcards from all over the country and world.
Staff believe the project has helped residents to be part of a wider community and feel the postcards have opened a great channel of communication.
"We have enjoyed some incredible discussions about childhood memories, travel and faraway places with people who might not have spoken properly, or at any great length for a little while" Activities Coordinator
