School children from across Shropshire helped show their appreciation to care staff and residents at Morris Care Centre in Wellington yesterday (17th February), as managers wrapped the home in 322 meters of ‘homemade hands of kindness’.
The event was organised by Deputy Manager Leesha Crocombe as part of Random Acts of Kindness Day, which encourages random acts of kindness in all shapes and sizes.
On Thursday, the exterior of the Home was secretly wrapped in paper hands which featured kind messages from local children. Inside the Home, messages appeared in windows and residents were surprised by a range of treats, from complimentary cakes to balloons and a buffet lunch.
Morris Care Centre Deputy Manager Leesha Crocombe said: “Sometimes it’s the little things that go a long way and our little hands went all the way! Everyone needs to be shown kindness and at this time of year we certainly need a little extra something to brighten our day. What better way to feel the love than colourful and caring messages from our local community? The event gave us the perfect excuse to do something extra special for our staff and residents to show how much we care.”
