RESIDENTS MAKE SPECIAL BIRTHDAY CARD

18 January 2017

One of our residents at Love Walk, Kim Fung, recently celebrated his birthday and many of the residents got together to make a birthday card for him.

As Kim is from Hong Kong, residents looked at pictures on the internet and thought about how Hong Kong heritage is important to him. In the end, they settled on trying to write a birthday message in Chinese characters. “Happy Birthday” and “Health, Happiness and Prosperity” were the chosen messages – a traditional Chinese birthday greeting, all on a red background - Kim’s favourite colour.

 “It was a lovely surprise for Kim. We try to make residents a handmade birthday card each year, and use this as a way of thinking about others, and thinking up ideas”, Penny Brice, Activities Co-ordinator, told us.
