Idea of the Day: Connecting

The world over, entire families are in isolation in their homes. But spare a thought for those who live alone or in supported homes, and who rely on visitors to bring the outside world to them. In these times, we cannot get to those people and many do not have access to the internet. Here is an idea to connect with them, while at the same time keeping you and your kids busy!


Send your poems, paintings or messages to somebody you know, an elderly relative or friend.

We have also prepared the directory below of nursing homes who would love to receive something for their patients.
