Togetherness: Abbeyfield Week 2020

This year, inspired by our theme of togetherness, our residents, staff, volunteers and supporters came together and celebrated what makes Abbeyfield special.

Bringing our houses together one activity at a time

We’d like to start by saying a huge thank you to all of the houses, homes, Member Societies and individuals who took part.

One of our cornerstone activities was the People of Abbeyfield paper-chain, representing the wonderful people who embody the spirit of our Abbeyfield Family. We received some excellent videos and we’re proud to present the final compilation, illustrating the togetherness we feel as one family across the nation.

Please feel free to share!

We also had a creative writing initiative, where we could all reflect on our own understanding of togetherness, and a baking competition!

We have had great entries for the competition as well as poems, stories and letters written by our residents and staff. The baking competition winner will be announced soon so keep your eyes peeled, and we also have something special planned for all the creative writing entries we received.

All sorts of other activities took place so we have compiled some of our favourite photos so far below.
