As the season of giving begins, Nether Hall Care Home in Swadlincote has issued an appeal, asking kind-hearted members of the public to add its residents to their Christmas card lists.

The Christmas card appeal has been launched to strengthen the home’s sense of community and relationship with the local area. As part of the campaign, Nether Hall Care Home has asked people to include a short message about their Christmas plans for residents to read and discuss. This will help them to reminisce about the festive celebrations they have enjoyed over the years.

Arthur 89, resident at Nether Hall care home, said: “I’m really looking forward to receiving the cards and I’m particularly eager to hear about everyone’s plans. Everyone has their own traditions at Christmas, and it will be great to hear about what everyone is getting up to.”

Maxine Fearnehough, Care Home Manager at Nether Hall care home, said: “Christmas is always a fun time here at Nether Hall. The home is always full of residents’ friends and families as well as having lots of lovely decoration.

“We are all looking forward to receiving cards from our local community and can’t wait to display them around the home.”
