Residents' Christmas artwork helps raise money for people in need

Two Christmas card designs, lovingly created by talented individuals living in Barchester care homes have been turned into charity Christmas cards to be received by people throughout the UK.

The sale of the cards will help raise money for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation, which helps older people and other adults living with a disability in the UK by offering grants to improve independence, mobility and quality of life.

The two designs used were entered into Barchester’s Christmas card competition by Luisa Shippey from Longueville Court Care Home in Peterborough and Biddy Bullinger from Ashfields Care Home in Norwich.

Both entries hugely impressed the judges. Luisa had painted a beautiful fireplace scene and dog-lover Biddy drew a comic design using the pun ‘dachshund through the snow’.

These winning works of art chosen from hundreds of designs entered into Barchester’s Christmas Card Competition by people who live in Barchester care homes. Well done, Luisa and Biddy!
