Last year Lochside Academy pupils designed and created a personalised Xmas card for each resident in 5 of our Care Homes – this was over 200 cards! We ran this as a competition too and used the winning design as our team e-card sent to providers, partners and colleagues. Scottish Care also provided a £15 Amazon voucher as a prize to the winner.
This was covered in local media:
This year, for Christmas 2021, we have 7 Care Homes and 2 schools (one secondary and one primary) involved:
- Laurels Lodge
- Maryfield West
- Cowdray Club
- Torry Care Home
- Tor na Dee
- Hawkhill House
- Eastleigh Nursing Home
- Lochside Academy (teacher contact: Corinne Millar)
- Stoneywood Primary (teacher contact: Megan Jewers)
325 Christmas cards were designed and created by the pupils and the contact teachers delivered them to the Care Homes 20-22 Dec. Our winners this year: £15 Amazon voucher to the winner of the senior school, Mija, S4 Lochside Academy and a £10 book voucher to our Stoneywood Primary winner, Amber, P6/7.
Megan Jewers, Lochside, was delighted to take part again this year saying “I had a lot more teachers keen to get involved this year than I did last year.”
We look forward to seeing how this initiative grows in the coming years.
