Fingal Volunteer Centre are proud to announce the launch of our letter campaign!
The initiative was created to help elderly people in our community living in nursing homes stay connected who are unable to receive visitors during these uncertain times.
So why not send a letter to the residents in one of the Nursing homes listed below?
They love the idea of receiving all your letters, poems, drawings or what you’d like to send them. It will also guarantee you a little fun activity and you might involve your small children too!
If you’d like to volunteer please Register your Interest and we’ll provide you with the contact details to send your letters.
(Where possible try to use some sellotape as an alternative to seal the envelope and remember to keep washing/sanitizing hands).
