Ghillie Dhu Crew Send Bugs with Hugs via CLASP!

CLASP has been working in partnership with North Ayrshire Council Fostering and Adoption services and the group called the Ghillie Dhu Crew that is made up of children who are in permanent foster care or who are adopted. The children have been lovingly making hearts and cards for older people who are living alone – the short video above captures the children making the cards and hearts and the partnership between the group and CLASP. 

CLASP nominated the older people to receive these ‘bugs with hugs’ cards, addressed the envelopes and posted the packages. Below is the letter which accompanied the cards.
