Hertfordshire Independent Living Service - Christmas Card Project.

Children in school made an extra special Christmas card this year, they took part in the annual HILS project. The children learnt about the importance of remembering those that may not have family around them and designed beautiful, festive cards to give to an elderly member of the community who might be spending Christmas alone.
