Local School’s Cards Send Christmas Cheer to Care Home

Keen to spread some festive cheer, Children of Brompton Westbrook Primary School in Gillingham made some Christmas cards for the residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home.

With Christmas proving different for us all this year but particularly for those living in care homes, some local primary school students decided to undertake a project to deliver some Christmas spirit to a nearby care home.

Residents of Rogers House in Wigmore were delighted to receive a lovely batch of handmade Christmas cards from the schoolchildren, who had spent some time speaking with their teachers about the effects of the pandemic on those living and working in care homes.

Karen Price, Deputy Head Teacher at the school said: “The children really enjoyed making the cards. We have been speaking to them about the impact of Covid-19 on the residents and the children really do wish them well. Also, we have been speaking about the bravery and dedication of care home workers, some of the children could relate as their parents work in the care profession.”

Jackie Miles, Home Manager of Rogers House added: “It was a lovely gesture for the children of Brompton Westbrook Primary School to think of us at this time of year. The cards brought a smile to the residents’ faces, so we’d like to say a big thank you and wish them a very Merry Christmas from all of us at Rogers House.”
