Deadline approaching for your drawings to go up at new care facility

General

The deadline is approaching to send in your drawings to be put on display at a new care facility.

North East Lincolnshire Council has been asking people from across the borough to come together to decorate a wall at Cambridge Park Care Home aimed at supporting local health and care services.

It can all be done from the comfort of your own home. All you have to do is get creative and send in a drawing to the council’s Communications Dept, Municipal Offices, Town Hall Square, Grimsby, DN31 1HU, with the title ‘Cambridge Park drawing’.

Drawings will be displayed at the facility, which was refurbished to support local health and care services during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The home, which was purchased by the Care Plus Group in January 2020, will be used to provide both nursing and residential care to patients who need additional support after leaving hospital and before being discharged home, or to prevent hospital admission where appropriate.

The idea for the drawings stemmed from local mum and council employee, Jodie Gibbons, as she joined in the ‘rainbow trail’, which has seen children putting pictures of rainbows in the windows of their home.

Jodie said: “It’s a really simple way to develop community spirit. We’re lucky to live in a place where we have some great community spirit already, but this is a brilliant opportunity to build on it even further. North East Lincolnshire is a lovely, homely place and we want to build on that.

“The drawings will help to spread kindness and happiness in these tough times. This idea brings the community together even more and helps children and parents who are spending a lot of time at home to be creative and have fun.”

What you need to do:

Do your drawing on an A4 piece of paper. Bright, bold colours are encouraged.

Please submit your drawings by Friday 3 July 2020 to Communications Dept, Municipal Offices, Town Hall Square, Grimsby, DN31 1HU, with the title ‘Cambridge Park drawing’.
