This year we decided to show our appreciation for all the amazing individuals and organisations who have supported us throughout 2020 in a fun, creative Christmas project. Residents with help from the care team painted 100 rainbow Christmas decorations and sent them out to the local community. Each contained a personalised ‘thank you’ message.
Home manager Gina Kitchenham said: “It was a real labour of love for our residents. They enjoyed the activity and they were all very creative in their approach to each design. They were particularly pleased to find a way to thank the many people in this lovely community who have supported our home this year.”
Amongst the many rainbows that were sent out, one was sent to the local Hovis Bakery. During the first lockdown, the bakery sent hot cross buns and fresh bread to Heathfield Court. John Hudson from the bakery said: “We were very happy to help and the rainbows were a lovely surprise. Thank you!”
Another recipient was our local Wilko store, who had sent us a large quantity of hand sanitiser – at the time, in very short supply. Michael Rushbrook from Wilko in Erith said: “We were happy to support our community and are very grateful for our rainbows.”
