Children produce cards for the elderly
More than 250 schoolchildren created personalised Christmas cards for seniors and people in need.
Atlantic Caregiving organised the Care to Share programme involving pupils from Purvis Primary School, Bermuda Institute, Saltus Grammar School, Warwick Academy and St George's Preparatory.
The schoolchildren produced cards for members of Meals On Wheels and Westmeath Nursing Home.
Meals on Wheels volunteer Allison Garland said: “It's always nice to see young students take an interest in the wellbeing of our community seniors.
“Our clients love the Christmas cards the children make during the holiday season and it puts a smile on their faces.”
Dymond Fox, Atlantic coordinator and administrator, said: “This programme makes a significant difference in the lives of our seniors both living in the community and in a home.
“Many of our seniors aren't able to get out during the Christmas holidays or have family living abroad.
“Receiving these cards that are personally illustrated by children with their own well wishes, brings our seniors so much joy.
“Next year our aim is to have even more schools participating as well as including many more rest homes.”
