The season of giving is upon us, and Featherton House Care Home in Deddington is asking kind-hearted members of the public to send Christmas cards to its residents.
The Christmas card appeal has been launched to help residents engage with the community, but also to bring back fond memories of the festive celebrations they have enjoyed over the years.
As part of the campaign, Featherton House Care Home is encouraging people to write a short message about their Christmas plans for the residents to read and discuss.
Pam West, 83, a resident at Featherton House, said: “I’m really looking forward to receiving the cards and I’m particularly eager to hear about everyone’s plans. Everyone has their own traditions at Christmas and it will be great to hear about what everyone is getting up to.”
Rachel Freeman, home manager at Featherton care home, said: “Christmas is always a fun time here at Featherton. The home is always full of residents’ friends and families as well as having lots of lovely decorations.
“We are all looking forward to receiving cards from our local community and can’t wait to display them around the home.”
