Friend in Deed

Can you help?

You will hopefully be aware that we have been collaborating recently with an intergenerational charity called Friend in Deed. Friend in Deed is a Norfolk based charity which aims to reduce loneliness and promote kindness by creating friendship across generations. One of their primary services involves children visiting care homes/day centres for older people and some of our students have taken part in these visits which had fantastic results. We have also been encouraging our children to get involved by producing work and writing cards/letters to send to care homes residents. We have future plans to continue working with Friend in Deed but like many charities, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a big impact on their services and their income.We have developed such a positive relationship with the charity and the local care home that we thought you might find this attached information of interest as we try to find different ways to support and maintain our links with them at this very different time.  You can also visit their Facebook page just search for ‘Friend in Deed’ where information about this is also posted.
