This year there has been an enormous strain on both the physical and mental wellbeing of our health, care and other frontline workers. It’s pretty clear they have been the real angels of this year, so why not put one on top of your tree this Christmas?
Creative agency, Joint, has partnered with paper artist Samantha Quinn (@squinnandco) co-founder of the Paper Artist Collective, to create an angel design in honour of our key workers for the top of your tree, in aid of Our Frontline. The design can be made easily from paper at home. Support the work of Our Frontline, an initiative offering mental health and bereavement support to key workers across the UK, by simply downloading an instruction template and donating at nhsangels.co.uk.
With everyone tucked up at home, getting crafty has become a favourite pastime. Sales of craft products are booming, and 1/10 people have said they’ve learnt a new hobby over lockdown. This is a lovely way to say thank you to our frontline workers. And don’t forget to share your angel on social media by tagging @NHSAngels_, using the hashtag #nhsangels and nominating 3 friends to make their own to raise even more money for Our Frontline.
Quote from SQuinn&Co: “Our NHS heroes have gone above and beyond in 2020, separating from their loved ones to help protect the families of others! It is so important to recognise this, I am delighted to be working with Joint to use my skills to support such an incredible cause. I hope that you enjoy making my paper angel with your family this festive season.”
Quote from Joint: As we come to the end of such a challenging 2020 and into the festive period, we hope that this idea can help put a smile on people’s faces and support those who deserve it most. Many thanks to SQuinn&Co for bringing such a creative project to life.
