Postcards of Kindness - Marriott House and Lodge pen pal initiative

Marriott House and Lodge is reaching out to the community....

As a local organisation we would ask if you could help us by helping us promote a new initiative.

We are aware that many individuals are in isolation in the community and as a care home we are in complete lock down to all visitors however we would like to invite you to be part of a new initiative. We understand this is a very busy time for you but even if you could just pass this information via a website etc we would be very grateful.

Marriott House and Lodge have been helping to combat loneliness and isolation for some time through the Post cards of Kindness initiative.

Social isolation will only increase due to the ever-developing Coronavirus outbreak.  We, the residents and staff of Marriott House and Lodge Care Home would like to help prevent this in any way we can, so we are looking for pen pals of all ages!

We are looking for pen pals of all ages.  It is amazing how a simple letter, short story, poem or even a photo or drawing can brighten someone’s day. The residents of Marriott House and Lodge will then reply as part of our busy social activity sessions.

In the time of such adversity it would be wonderful if we could work together as community and maintain some connection with one another

We are happy to receive things via post which can be sent to
