CHILDREN from three Coventry nurseries have their pens at the ready to write some letters to cheer up lonely locals this Christmas.
Tiny Teddies, which has nurseries in Chapelfields, Radford and Whitley, wants people to nominate both people and places who could do with a toddler-style mood boost this festive season.
The ‘Lovely Letters’ campaign aims to target lonely and vulnerable people who would benefit from receiving a letter or drawing from the children at the nursery.
Paul Ingram, Tiny Teddies’ director, said: “Every year we are usually able to socialise with elderly residents in local care homes but of course we are unable to do so this year.
“We recognise this, alongside being unable to have family visitors, must have created a very lonely time for the elderly and care home residents.
“We want to show our ongoing support to our community by sending some ‘positive post’ to let people know they’re not alone and that we are thinking of them.”
He added the nursery wanted to broaden the number of people it communicated with this year and felt Christmas was the perfect opportunity to do so.
To nominate, fill out the form at TinyTeddiesCoventry.co.uk – whether a new mum, elderly resident, a single parent who has been able to get out and about or even a child needing encouragement to make their mark or develop their creative skills.
Tiny Teddies Day Nursery is currently taking new registrations for January. Call 02476 590059 for more.
