Letters of Hope from Clifton

IMG 7092

Clifton pupils have been writing letters and drawing pictures for the residents of Fulford Nursing Home.

The inspiration came from Mrs Bromley who saw a Facebook post encouraging people to put pen to paper and share messages of hope with the residents of the care home.

24 pupils aged 5-6 from classes 1E and 1J selected one name each from a list of residents. The children then used paints, crayons, colouring pencils and other materials to create their pictures and letters, which were posted to Fulford Nursing Home on Thursday evening (19 March). Popular themes included rainbows, hearts and flowers.

Mr Phil Hardy, Head of Clifton School and Nursery, said: ‘It is wonderful to see the children using their creativity to show compassion for those in need and extend the hand of friendship during these uncertain times.

‘We hope that the letters and pictures will bring joy and happiness to the residents of Fulford Nursing Home who may be feeling lonely and vulnerable as a result of self-isolation.’
