These past couple of weeks have been very challenging for a lot of us, especially those people whom have had loved ones affected by the virus. Our thoughts and love go out to every single person who is unwell, their families and as ever to our wonderful care workers who are trying their upmost to help during this difficult time.
Though these may be dark days for a lot of us, we are astounded by the acts of love and kindness that we are seeing every day, whether this is in care homes, the communities or people’s own houses. People are turning out weekly for the #clapforcarers (including our own staff at Stichell House in the photo above); children are drawing rainbows, writing letters and colouring rainbows to help keep up morale; neighbours and strangers are coming together like never before to help each other in small practical ways. We salute every single person who is in their small way, making a difference. The rainbow has become the universal symbol of hope during this crisis, and we try to remember that often the brightest rainbows come after the darkest storms.
