Summer Postcard Competition

9th Jun 2020

Boys and girls,

I want to thank all of you who sent lovely pictures and cards to the Galgorm Care Home during lockdown. It was a lovely way of sending our best thoughts and wishes to the people living and working there.

During lockdown, many of them have not been able to see their family or have visitors. As you can imagine, this would be very lonely.

Today I want to encourage you to get involved in helping to cheer up our local community again. Galgorm Care Home have asked us to take part in a Summer Postcard competition.

Send a postcard to the care home of a place you have been to or would love to visit.

Design your postcard! Draw a picture of the place you have chosen. 

You can keep it simple and special or go wild and creative with colourful gel pens, paint, felt tips, glitter - the works! 

Write a little 'best wishes' message on the back, something to brighten their day.

Write your first name and class, e.g. Jane P4McC clearly so that we can contact winners about prizes.

The closing date for the competition is Friday 19th June. Send all postcards to:

Galgorm Care Home

90 Galgorm Road,


BT42 1AA


Thank you,

Mrs Thompson
