Residents urged to write letters to lonely care home residents for World Calligraphy Day
A calligraphy company is encouraging Shropshire people to send handwritten letters to care home resident to show they care, for this year's World Calligraphy Day.
Manuscript Pen Company, based in Highley, launched the appeal ahead of World Calligraphy Day, which will take place on August 12.
Manuscript is launching a campaign to encourage people across Shropshire to learn a new skill, adopt traditional practices and to send handwritten notes and letters to be shared with care homes residents across the Midlands, who have suffered loneliness in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
With many elderly residents now allowed to receive a regular visitor, in line with the latest Government guidance, and families still hesitant due to the ongoing risk of coronavirus, Manuscript’s ‘send a letter’ campaign will aim to bridge the gap and bring some joy to residents.
