Home Instead Senior Care's 'Be a Santa to a Senior' initiative has had a great boost with the children of Springfield School in Sale helping make Christmas cards for all seniors that will be receiving presents.

Lucy, co-owner of Home Instead (Altrincham & Sale) held a card making design workshop for 120 children at Springfield School. 

As an ex-design manager from Hallmark cards, Lucy was able to go through the whole process of card making design that helped the children create 120 unique cards.  Hallmark UK kindly donated all the materials.

All the cards will be delivered along with the presents that have been collected as part of the Be a Santa to a Senior initiative.

Lucy commented “The children were amazingly creative and I think were very proud of their achievements, particularly when they heard that the presents will go to seniors who would not normally receive many cards or presents at Christmas."

Home Instead also held a 'Be a Santa to a Senior' day in the foyer of M&S Sale.  Shoppers donated over £400 worth of presents on the day & many more said that they would bring their presents to the Sale Community Open Day on Saturday, 24th November at St Paul's church, 10.30am-3pm.  On Thursday 22nd November there will be another 'Be a Santa to a Senior' day at M&S Sale. 

If you would be interested in creating a card, Lucy will be holding a card making desk at the Community Open Day for any budding artist to enjoy. 

The Sale Community Open will have 40+ stalls, with lots of individual companies, charities and groups selling Christmas presents, giving information and advice.  All are local so come along to see what is on your door step!
