School pupils and staff write letters to spread happiness

PUPILS and staff at Wells Cathedral School have been writing letters to the residents of the care homes in Wells, in conjunction with the Wells Coronavirus Network.

The school wanted to do something to help raise spirits and provide some contact with the outside world for those who are more elderly and vulnerable in the community, who have had to endure the long weeks of lockdown isolated from family and friends.

The letters were handed over to network representative Philip Welch by head master Alastair Tighe and some of the Pre-Prep pupils to be distributed to residents of Torrwood, Fletcher House, Mellifont Abbey and Lawrence Centre.

School musicians also submitted some music performance recordings for the residents.

“We hope that these letters and musical recordings provide enjoyment and show our love to many in the Wells community,” said a school spokesperson.
