At HC-One’s The Harefield care home, in Middlesex, they wanted to honour all of the brave souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the war to protect our freedoms.
To celebrate their courage, Colleagues and Resident Barbara Hawkins created poppies. Using materials as simple as felt and pipe cleaners, they made touching tributes to all fallen brothers and sisters.
Barbara adored making the poppies. This was a fun exercise to not only keep her mind and hands active but to serve as a symbol to everybody who gave their tomorrow for our today.
Home Manager, Mary Nadeem, commented, “It was delightful to see Barbara so happy. Her smiling face was touching to see.”
Barbara, pictured, loved making the poppies. She thought the end results were absolutely lovely and loved putting her hands to good use.
Mary continued, “This was a brilliant idea of marking Remembrance Day.”
