Wells Blue School student designs Christmas card for Heads Up

A TALENTED Year 11 Wells Blue School student has designed a Christmas card for the clients and carers at the mental health charity Heads Up.

Abi Rolfe was recommended by the school’s Head of Art to Jenni Robertson, their Head of Health and Social Care.

“We are working in collaboration with Heads Up so the students can learn about dementia and the other forms of mental illness,” said Jenni.

The school will print the cards which will be given to the Heads Up clients and carers at a festive lunch on Christmas Day at the charity’s South Horrington base.

“We are establishing a long-term relationship with Jenni and her team,” said Heads Up manager Bridget Harvey, “where their Health and Social students come and participate in our woodwork and pottery classes.

“From February we will also be giving the students Dementia Friends training.”

Also supporting the Christmas Day lunch at Heads Up are the owners of Daniel’s Cafe in Wells, Kate and Georgie Robbins, who will be providing goody bags for the clients and carers.

• Becoming a Dementia Friend simply means finding out more about how dementia affects a person – and then, armed with this understanding, doing small everyday things that help.
