Do you have any unwanted postcards of well-known places or people? If so, we want them!
Staff who work with patients with memory problems and dementia at Windermere Lodge on the Tickhill Hospital site, Balby, are collecting the postcards which will be used to spark patients’ memories and to get them talking about the good times.
Roshanne Fox, our Ward Manager on Windermere Lodge, said: “We’re making a plea for any postcards of well-known places, whether it’s landmarks in Doncaster or seaside towns, and famous people If you’ve got any that you don’t want, we’d love them.
“We’re going to use the postcards for some work with dementia patients,” she added. “ We’re hoping it will spark memories in our patients and get them talking to us about the good times they had or how they remember a famous person.”
Can you help? If so, please post your unwanted postcards to Roshanne Fox, Windermere Lodge, Tickhill Road site, off Weston Road, Balby, Doncaster, or you can drop them off.
