Our Postcard Pals bring such joy

Westbury Court Care Home, Wiltshire-Arthur & Mary with some of the wonderful cards

“We’ve been so happy to receive so many letters; our residents absolutely love them and the lovely messages have brought tears to our eyes"

Postcard Pals by brighterkindResidents at Westbury Court Care Home would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has sent in such lovely letters, cards and pictures as part of brighterkind's Postcard Pals initiative.

We have asked people in our local community to become a 'Postcard Pal' to keep our residents connected and cheery by sending in their drawings, letters and cards so we can share them with everyone who lives here and bring a smile to their faces.

As well as a delivery of 54 cards from the Foundation Students at Fairfield Farm College in Dilton Marsh, we’ve received letters from school children with some wonderful drawings. A message from our young Postcard Pal Amelia reads “To the residents of Westbury Court. I am sorry you can’t have anybody to visit you but I will try and do something every week to cheer you up. I am always with you in your heart.”

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Suzanne said “We’ve been so happy to receive so many letters; our residents absolutely love them and the lovely messages have brought tears to our eyes.”

Thank you in advance for any postcards of happiness sent into our home, they really bring us all such joy!

At Westbury Court we believe in living life to the full. That’s why we’re passionate about creating vibrant, stimulating activities that will help our residents to love every day. We call them ‘Magic Moments’.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents.

The idea behind Magic Moments is that just because someone moves into a care home doesn't mean that the things they love doing should suddenly stop – quite the contrary, we believe our residents should have the opportunity to love every day, by doing the things that they have always loved as well as trying new things along the way.
