Picture perfect – Kingston Vale care home spreads Christmas cheer

December 24th 2020

A care home in Kingston Vale has been spreading Christmas cheer by post.

The team at Care UK’s Sherwood Grange, on Robin Hood Lane, surprised residents’ families and friends with heartfelt Christmas cards.

Rick Mayne, Home Manager at Sherwood Grange, said: “Here at Sherwood Grange, we’re committed to helping everyone feel connected during this holiday season. The support we received throughout the year from friends and relatives has been nothing short of extraordinary, so we wanted to say thank you. The Christmas cards gave us the perfect opportunity to surprise them and share some festive cheer at the same time.

“Residents loved dressing up and choosing their very own festive outfits before getting their picture taken – it really helped everybody get into the festive spirit. We’d like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas from all of us at Sherwood Grange.”
