Magnolia House, a residential care home for the elderly in Cottingham, has received handmade Christmas cards from the students at Croxby Primary Academy.
The students at Croxby Primary in Hull, created the season’s greetings and delivered them to the care home wearing COVID-safe PPE, including a mask and gloves. The cards have been isolated in the home for 72 hours before they are given to the residents.
Students at the local primary school wanted to celebrate the festivities with the residents at Magnolia House, keeping the annual tradition going.
Sarah Carter, activities coordinator at Magnolia House, said: “Our residents love celebrating the festivities with the children at Croxby Primary and it is very thoughtful of the students to have created the cards. Thank you to everyone at Croxby, the cards will look great around the home.”
Audrey, resident at Magnolia House, said: “I love Christmas, and the cards from the children at Croxby were very thoughtful and caring. Thank you to the teachers for helping the children and organising their delivery to us.”
Kerry Mason, Assistant headteacher at Croxby Primary Academy, said: “Being part of the wider community is important for us at Croxby. The children were overjoyed that they were able to make a difference by creating cards and write letters for the residents at Magnolia House.”
