A CARE home has launched an appeal to Malvern people to send Christmas cards to its residents to spread some festive cheer.
The Springs is hoping the gesture will help end the tough year on a cheerful note and fill those living there with warmth, excitement and the feeling of belonging.
Staff say them knowing people are thinking of them will bring comfort and joy.
For many, Christmas is a time of joy, celebration and family, but for some it can be a lonely and emotional time, reflecting on loved ones who have passed.
The Springs staff want to do all it can to give its residents have a fun-filled Christmas but know it will be difficult for some who do not have any relatives while others will be unable to see their families.
Lesley Work, The Springs home manager, said: “It’s a very special feeling to open a card and to know that someone cares about you and wants to wish you well at this time of the year.
“If we can get enough cards so that each resident has the joy of opening something during the festive season, that would be really special.
“The Malvern community has really come together this year so we’re hoping the same spirit can help rally lots of Christmas cheer.
“In these unprecedented times, a show of community support like this would really boost everyone’s spirits in the home and make it an even merrier Christmas.”
Cards can be posted to The Springs Bupa Care Home, Spring Lane, Malvern, WR14 1AL.
