Festive Friend – connecting the generations at Christmas!

23 December 2020

Thanks to the children and teachers at Thames Ditton Juniors School for taking part in Festive Friend.

Festive Friend is an opportunity to give the gift of a festive card/drawing at Christmas.

In December children from Thames Ditton Juniors drew Christmas pictures/cards or wrote festive messages which are being given to patients on the elderly care wards at Kingston Hospital.

Juliet Butler, one of the hospital’s physiotherapists who works on the elderly care wards, organised Festive Friend:

“I saw it on Facebook and thought that would be a nice thing to do for our patients: it is an opportunity to bring the young and the old together and kind to spare a thought for someone in hospital.  This Christmas is particularly hard for relatives to visit their loved ones so why not spread some festive cheer. Huge thanks to Thames Ditton Juniors for taking part.”
