Staff and young people at our Auton Residential Children’s Home in Newcastle have included a very poignant message in their Christmas decorations this year.
A unique bauble takes pride of place on the home’s Christmas tree to mark the year of lockdown and celebrates the close bonds of everyone who makes up the Auton family.
Bearing the message: ‘When the world stayed apart, we stayed together’, the bauble is a reminder that, although 2020 was a very difficult year, togetherness in the home was – and still is – more important than ever.
“Of all the decorations we have around our home – and there are many – this bauble has to be my favourite of all,” said manager, Kerry. “Bought by a thoughtful member of our staff team, it sums up our response to the pandemic perfectly.”
