Spurcroft Primary School pupils in Thatcham craft Christmas cards for local retirement communities




Year 4 pupils from Spurcroft Primary School spread festive cheer for home-owners at Turner Place and William House in Thatcham.

The children, aged from eight to nine, created their very own hand-crafted Christmas cards this year for those who moved into the retirement communities earlier this year.

The initiative, organised by McCarthy Stone, was set out to create a Christmas that those at Turner Place and William House will always remember.

The children even included special notes in each card to create a memory that their recipients can cherish.

Spurcroft Primary School inclusion team leader Mary Stagg said: “We wanted to help spread a little festive cheer this Christmas, so we were really pleased we were able to get involved with McCarthy Stone’s extra special seasonal campaign.

“The children were all so excited to be sending their Christmas cards to those living at Turner Place and William House, and they all took extra care to make sure they were fantastic.

“It's such a lovely initiative for our children to be part of, and we’d like to thank the team at McCarthy Stone for getting us involved in helping to bring the community together”.

McCarthy Stone Southern divisional marketing manager Verity McKay said: “The home-owners at Turner Place and William House were delighted to receive their special hand-made Christmas cards, which I’m sure they will keep as a special memento for years to come.

“Community is one of the main attractions at our developments and it’s important that we keep that community spirit alive at Christmas and all year round.

“The home-owners at Turner Place and William House wholeheartedly enjoy connecting with people, and we aim to facilitate that as much as possible.

“Our hope is that, next year, we can go one step further and safely invite people from across Thatcham to come and celebrate Christmas together with us."
