Rogers House Residents Receive Letters from Pen Pals
Residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore received a batch of letters from their friends at Fairview Community Primary School this week.
The residents of the Drewery Drive care home have been busy making their responses this week, after they received an exciting delivery from their neighbours.
Whilst the pandemic continues to prevent them from meeting face to face, the intergenerational friends are keeping in touch with some good old-fashioned letters, with the children writing to tell the residents about themselves, their families and what they like to do.
The residents were thrilled with the letters landing on their doormat and immediately set to writing back to their pen pals.
Jackie Miles, Home Manager of Rogers House said: “We very much miss being able to visit the school, or have the children come here, but it’s lovely that we are able to keep in touch with letters.
“There is something very special about receiving a letter, that someone has taken the time to write for you and it’s lovely to see the residents’ faces when they read them.”
