Postcards of Kindness campaign


Recommended Posts

Amnesty International has joined the Postcards of KIndness campaign for Christmas.

Please see attached scan of the Amnesty magazine or have a look at the Postcards of Kindness facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/PostcardsOfKindness/

This is a short description of the campaign from the Facebook page:

'Writing postcards, connecting lives...

Last year Your Health Limited launched a campaign asking people to send our residents postcards. We're taking our Postcards of Kindness Appeal one step further this year, and would like to encourage more care homes and care settings to get involved. We want to combat loneliness and isolation across the country, and remind our residents that there's always somebody thinking of them - regardless of where in the world the postcards have come from. Imagine being able to travel the world alongside card writers while sharing their holiday adventures; residents' memories are stirred and imaginations piqued!

Getting involved is so simple, and we welcome contributions from care homes, hospices, hospitals and other care settings, as well as posts and messages from those who would like to send a card to one or more addresses.'

    • Another recommendation for Sebastian at Bastek. He completely redid our family bathroom and transformed it into such a beautiful space. He is methodical in his work, really pays attention to detail and gives clear, considered advice.  As well as fitting the new bathroom suite so carefully, he did a fabulous job with the tiling, painting and finishes. An added bonus was the great communication and tidiness! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and hope to involve him in future projects. He's on 07947 751333 and is really responsive on WhatsApp. 
    • thanks! i was thinking how to create the spiked things myself as have seen some online but expensive once you calculate how much you need!
    • Suggest you get come Correx eg from an old estate agents sign and cut it into 50mm wide strips. Then get some carpet tacks (15mm long)  Push the carpet tacks into and through the Correx at 25mm intervals so that the sharp ends stick upwards. Then attach the strip to the top of your fence where it is lowest. It  doesnt injure them. It just makes it uncomfortable for them and they soon learn.
    • At sue , do you think the people of southwark or even the UK on their own can solve all of the environmental problems in the world on our own ? And putting garden waste into a brown bin is going to solve the environmental  problems of the world ? I do my bit for the environment by doing my recycling and driving a electric van , southwark council are causing more pollution by having LTNs and causing the traffic jams and vehicles to idle, believe me iam all for the environment but I'm afraid what happens to the earth in 200 , 500 or one thousand years from now is not my concern , I need to makesure that I can keep myself and my family alive now the same as many other people who are finding it difficult to pay for food and pay their Bills,  so I'm afraid I will be putting my garden waste into MY green bin which I pay for via my council tax and save my £80 which would help pay for my electric of gas or food ..  Also heard that council may only be collecting green and blue bins once a month,  not confirmed but just hear say at the moment ...
