Mask donation to Fern Brook Lodge, Gillingham North Dorset 

By Emma Sleeth (Asda Gillingham)

I've donated 650 face masks to our local care home Fern Brook Lodge, in Gillingham, North Dorset. Under normal circumstances I go to the care home every Friday and help with activities with the residents alongside the once a month dementia friendly cafe that I help facilitate. 

It was a clear choice for the donation as we have such a close bond, especially with the activities ladies in this photo, Jan and Julia – the lead and assistant activity coordinator's in the home. 

I really miss going to Fern Brook residential and dementia care home as I always come away feeling like I've made a difference to the residents. I can't wait until I'm able to resume our weekly activities.
