RESIDENTS at a Clacks care home have designed a distinctive Christmas card which was sent out to relatives and stakeholders.

The red and green abstract flower design was created at Marchglen Care Home in Alloa and sent to family, stakeholders and community contacts.

The project was part of a wider initiative by company Caring Homes, which gave its 70 homes across the country the opportunity to design and print their own card with residents, relatives and community groups all getting involved.

Emma Clarke, head of marketing at Caring Homes, said: "Our homes really enjoyed getting involved in designing their own Christmas cards this year and we have had some amazing designs from residents, relatives and community groups who are involved with the homes.

"Christmas is an amazing time of year in our homes with lots going on.

"The festive season, with its familiar sights, sounds and smells, evokes a lot of happy memories for our residents and there is always time to talk about Christmas past as well as enjoy everything which is planned for this year."
