Staying Connected

Send A Virtual Message

Even though we are staying indoors we can still remain connected to those we care about. Why not write a message and a picture on a poster, take a photo and send it over? This will make those you care about smile. Many people are including rainbows.

Connecting in Isolation

Many people are having to stay in side all the time at the moment to help keep them safe. Many of these are older people and some might live in care homes. Sending pieces of artwork can help these people feel connected with the outside world.
