Residents at our Solihull and Surbiton Homes are asking children to send in letters, cards and drawings now that schools have closed.

We will then upload them on the gallery on top of this page and on our social media channels.


This initiative comes after we began limiting visitors to our three Homes, pausing visits from outside entertainers and family members as part of our infection management protocol.


Residents at our High Wycombe Home have been receiving letters, cards and drawings from High Wycombe CofE School and Castlefield School.

It means so much when we receive letters from children. It’s lovely to know what they’re getting up to and that they’re thinking of us oldies! They really brighten up our days.

One suggestion is for pupils to send in drawings of rainbows. This follows a national campaign which has seen creative and elaborate drawings of rainbows placed in windows up and down the country, to help spread hope amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.


They can be sent to the Solihull and Surbiton Homes directly via the addresses below, where they will be handled safely. Children should post the letters as part of their daily exercise routine.


Here you can see Dick, who’s a resident in one of our Homes. He loves to paint and decided to ‘respond’ by drawing more beautiful rainbows!
