In these challenging times of lockdown, we are all missing our family and friends.

Sometimes it’s the smallest of gestures that mean the most, so Garden House Hospice Care is inviting people to send some love this lockdown by posting a wildflower heart to someone you miss.

Research by Royal Mail last year found that 74 per cent of people feel writing letters has positive mental health benefits and 18 per cent of adults have sent more letters and cards to family since lockdown began.

Therefore during the time of social distancing, a simple act of sending a wildflower paper heart and hand-written note could be the key to finding some much-needed headspace while reaching out to those we love.

The hospice’s British wildflower seeded paper hearts can be planted directly into a pot or bed and bloom within a few weeks, hopefully as we emerge out of lockdown.

Wildflower hearts are available for a minimum donation of £3 per card, which will help the hospice as it continues to look after its patients, their families and carers during the pandemic.

Visit www.ghhospicecare.org.uk to order. Remember to include a personal message and delivery address, and the hospice will do the rest.
