Do you have 2 minutes free today? Do you have change to buy a postage stamp? If you answered yes to both of these, then we would like to encourage you to send a resident at The Chocolate Works Care Village a card/letter/drawing.

We LOVE to see what you’ve been getting up to and receiving pictures from the community make us all smile. When we have received a selection of cards, we will be doing a Christmas activity and write back to you!
