Last year over 24 local schools across BaNES supported the #ChristmasCompassion campaign by designing over 2000 Christmas cards with heartwarming messages, poems and even jokes, which were sent to bring some festive cheer to those in need during ‘Covid Christmas’.
Once again, 3SG, Compassionate Community and Bath Open Christmas are inviting local school children to design and handwrite Christmas cards to help make someone else’s Christmas Day special. All Christmas card requests must be made by 4pm on Wednesday 15th December as deliveries are taking place between Mon 13th to Thur 16th December.
If you are part of a school, please click here to find out how you can get involved. Update 1st December 2021: We have now distributed all of our blank Christmas Card templates, so if your school would like to be involved then please create your own unique cards and post them to us.
If you know someone who would benefit from receiving a card, or if you are from an organisation (e.g. charity, care home etc) and would like to request a batch of cards, then please click here to make a request.
We are also looking for volunteers to help out with distributing the Christmas cards, as well as a few other ad-hoc bits of support such as sorting the cards before they reach their final destination! If you'd be interested in volunteering, then please express your interest here.
"It was beneficial for the pupils to reflect on how fortunate they were to have family and friends to support them - particularly during the pandemic and at this time of year. All the children felt really proud that they were making a small difference to the lives of vulnerable and lonely people this Christmas." - St Keyna Primary School
Thank you to all of last year's fabulous Christmas Card Creators!
