Festive Card Making! 2018/19

This opportunity takes place between 11 Dec 2018 and 13 Dec 2018.

Bring some festive cheer to older people and children, reduce loneliness and enhance well-being, by making festive cards! The cards will be given to elderly people living in residential homes in Sheffield and children in Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice and at the Sheffield Children's Hospital. The sessions will be really relaxed and all craft materials will be provided. Your card will make a real difference to someone this Christmas, and help to reduce loneliness. Why not bring a friend with you and get in the festive spirit! Get creative with your design, and if you are an international student, you could theme it to your country of origin! The sessions are Tuesday 11th, Wednesday 12th, Thursday 13th December, 1-3pm. You can stay for as long as you like and make one card or more!
