GROVE House craft group, led by volunteer Cath Birch, in the Community Hub, Ilkley, spent the first week of February crafting giant Valentine’s Cards. A loving gesture they wished to send to residents living at their sister home Fern House, Bingley. But this thoughtful activity wasn’t done in isolation. Unbeknown to the group, the residents of Fern House they were posting to had also been working in their craft group, creating two giant Valentine’s Day cards to send to Grove House residents and the Community Hub in a secret surprise act of friendship and love. The respective sets of giant cards were ‘posted’ on February 7 for ‘National Send A Card To A Friend Day’. The colourful creations featured crafted hearts and flowers, along with individual and hand written greetings of love and friendship. The craft activities were guided by volunteers in both homes, and were carried out by residents, service users and family, assisted by activities coordinators.
