BROTHER and sister Flossie and Sam Walton used their artistic talents to brighten up Father’s Day at local care homes and managed apartment blocks.

Flossie, six, and Sam, eight, made Father’s Day cards for The Cedars and The Westbourne care homes and Bernard Court and Lovell Court.

The artwork is the latest community project by the children after they raised £60 for NHS staff at Leighton Hospital by selling bookmarks they made.

Having seen a post on Facebook about Co-op Member Pioneer Alison Wright providing supplies to the NHS, the family contacted Alison, asking her to take the money and buy something for the NHS.

Alison arranged for Flossie and Sam to come to the Co-op on London Road with their parents to stock up on supplies for the hospital of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, snacks, chocolates and hand cream using the money they had raised, to which Alison added £15

Alison said: “Having seen the amazing artwork that Flossie and Sam Walton produced for the bookmarks they made to sell to raise funds for the NHS, I asked them if they would like to help me by using their artistic flair to make Father’s Day cards for the local care homes and managed apartment blocks.

“They produced four amazing cards, each one different, to be displayed in the communal areas of each of our four homes, and the Co-op kindly donated boxes of chocolates for the residents to share.

“It was a very different Father’s Day this year, as with most of the key times when we normally celebrate together with our families, and we thought this might brighten the day for those unable to see their families.”
