We are looking at sharing some ‘care parcels’ with some residents in the coming weeks. This as of part of our Coxhoe Cares Coronavirus Community Volunteer Response initiative.
We will be providing further details of this in due course. We will be asking people to nominate people who are self-isolating or alone and would appreciate support.
We think it would be great if we could include some goodwill letters, cards or pictures from children and young people in the care packs. We are therefore asking children and young people to handwrite a letter, card or p and deliver it to us. The letter should give their first name and age. They could include a picture, or some information about what they like to do or cook or eat or their favourite place in the village? They could include a message to stay safe and a rainbow design. Perhaps the messages could show that the people who the care parcels are directed at are not alone. They could show that the community is thinking of them and supports them. Other ideas are of course welcome.
It would be a wonderful gesture from our young people.
If your child is prepared and able to support this please could you or they drop it into the village hall letterbox when out for exercise the letterbox is to the side of the village hall.
The letter, card or picture should give the child’s first name and age.
We would like to receive the messages the village hall before Monday 18 May in order that we can add them to individual care packages.
We hope our community can support this initiative. If you have any questions please contact Claire at firstname.lastname@example.org
