Our Woodlands Park home in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, received their first batch of postcards as part of the Postcards of Kindness initiative this week.
Postcards of Kindness is a project that asks members of the public to write and send postcards to residents of care homes across England. While it’s a small gesture, the resulting deliveries bring a great deal of joy and spark lively conversations among the older people who receive them.
Woodlands first postcard was received from a couple based in Harrow, who had edited a picture of the Woodlands Park home into a stunning watercolour image.
The Postcards of Kindness project was originally set up to combat loneliness and isolation across the country, and remind residents that there’s always somebody thinking of them – regardless of where in the world the postcards have come from.
