Girl Photo for residential homeChildren from a Taunton day nursery have sent a special package of drawings to two local residential care homes to spread some joy during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Children from the Mama Bear’s Day Nursery close to Bridgwater and Taunton College have been creating bright and colourful rainbow pictures to cheer up residents at Abbeyfield and Camelot House and Lodge in Wellington.

Mama Bear’s Taunton nursery manager, Kerry Sturmey, said: “Our Taunton children have been making some lovely rainbow pictures which we have sent to a local residential care home and a local home for residents with Dementia to spread some hope and happiness. The children wanted to let the residents know they were thinking of them.

“We only have children of key workers in attendance at nursery at the moment and they have created some beautiful art to send, including pictures of rainbows which have become a symbol of spreading joy amidst the crisis.

“We hope this small act of kindness brings a smile to people’s faces.”

Sam Paddon, manager of Camelot House and Lodge – run by Camelot Care – said: “Our residents and staff just were delighted when they saw the rainbow pictures, and several of the images are now displayed on our walls.

“Community links are really important to the people with dementia who we support. And at the current time – with their usual personal contacts restricted because of the virus – it is just lovely for our residents to know the children are thinking of them, so a big thank you to Mama Bear’s.”

Mama Bear’s is a family-run, renowned nursery group offering high-quality, affordable care across the South West. Established in 2002, the group now includes 24 nursery settings in Bristol, Somerset and Devon and caters for children aged three-months to five-years.
