Wanstead folk are being asked to write a Christmas card or letter to residents of a local care home to help make Christmas more festive.
The Cambridge Nursing Home on Cambridge Park is inviting people to become “festive friends”, saying: “With Christmas just around the corner, we need your help to bring the amazing festive Wanstead community spirit to our residents.”
The home, which is rated good by the CQC, is asking for letters, cards or drawings to be sent to 61 Cambridge Park, E11 2PR.
This is a jolly good idea – and there’s no reason why, with about a dozen care homes in Wanstead, that people shouldn’t adopt their local home and show it some socially distant and COVID-compliant love. Let us know how you get on.
