Residents Create Christmas Cards

Inspiration came from Melbourne's Activity Coordinator Trayce Pullen and The Sherwood Press Group for this recent creative activity;


Residents showed  their flare and skill as they got together with Sherwood Press to make their own Christmas Cards.

Head Designer from the Sherwood Press Group selected his favourite designs whilst creative leader Anna provided motivation and creativity. Pictured Above; Residents and staff get creative with Anna of Sherwood Press, resident Marjorie, Trayce Pullen - Activity Co-ordinator, resident Jean, Gillian (friend of Melbourne House) resident Ivy

The best designs were selected to go to print and be packaged for sale in order to raise money for the residents fund. As well as giving their time and skills, all materials were donated by the Sherwood Group, we thank them for their generosity.

Cards are on sale now at Melbourne House. Pictured the chosen designs
