National Older People’s Day with Levenshulme Good Neighbors

I spent the day working with elders in Levenshulme as part of National Older People’s Day. It was a lovely event with great attendance. Encouraging participants to make Felt and Foam flowers that they could use as book marks or decoration.

Many thanks to Naomi Smith for supporting me!

Levenshulme Good Neighbors do great work support elders with independent living, matching volunteers with similar interests to elders whom may need assistance getting to appointments or just want a bit of company.

These simple flowers were made using pre-cut (mostly by me!) felt and foam shapes, pipe cleaners, buttons and beads. They are really bright and beautiful! Thanks also to Nancy Lavender for the inspiration.
