Join Britain’s care home residents and carers as we #CrackerSmile this Christmas.
This Christmas, we want to give you, care workers, care home residents and their loved ones an opportunity to make each other smile through the sharing of messages of goodwill and festive jokes.
To support wellbeing this winter and show that despite the pandemic, Christmas can still be a magical time for residents and colleagues to enjoy, we have a host of exciting #CaringatChristmas activities planned to raise everyone’s spirits.
As part of this we want to hear your messages of festive goodwill and favourite Christmas cracker jokes and to help you share them with as many care workers and care home residents as possible.
How to get involved
We’d love it if you could share a video of yourself telling your favourite joke or message of goodwill, but you can use text if you prefer.
On Facebook, you can add your warm words or jokes as a comment to our page here.
Using specially created graphics, we’ll turn your jokes and messages of goodwill into a series of short digital Christmas Cracker videos that we’ll share with care workers and care home residents across the country.
The small print
Please make sure you have permission from anyone you feature in your video and please keep your cracker jokes clean and respectable. After all, you don’t want to end up on Santa’s naughty list.
