Chislehurst Care Home Residents Create Giant Animal Sculptures to Raise Awareness of Endangered Species

Residents and staff at RMBI Care Co Home. Prince George Duke of Kent Court, in Chislehurst, have created giant animal sculptures to raise awareness of endangered species across the planet.

Using an array of recycled materials, including cardboard and newspapers, residents got to work creating animals such as a giraffe, rhino, porpoise and otter. Everybody had the opportunity to help shape the animals’ bodies and paint their different features. Once complete, the papier-mâché animals were displayed proudly in the care home’s reception to raise awareness to all living and working in the Home, as well as visitors.

“At Prince George Duke of Kent Court, we are increasingly conscious of the impact our actions have on the planet,” says Diane Connor, Activities Coordinator at Prince George Duke of Kent Court.

“When speaking with residents and staff, we decided to focus on a number of fun and educational activities to learn more about how we can reduce our environmental footprint, and make little changes to our daily lives,” adds Diane.
