Bupa said that receiving a Christmas card helps boost morale, wellbeing and a sense of belonging and said the cards they receive will be opened and placed around each home for everyone to enjoy.

It’s a small gesture of kindness which would have such a positive impact, providing residents with a great sense of warmth, support, and togetherness – the ultimate definition of festive cheer!”
