Bluebird Care Exmouth wants people to write letters of encouragement for its customers to help the more vulnerable people feel a little less alone.

The idea is the brainchild of manager Frankie Rowe after her own grandmother, aged 88, decided to self-isolate and she decided to write to a card to her.

Mrs Rowe received a call from her grandmother telling her how it brightened up her day.

She said: “Right now, it is more important than ever to help each other, we must look after the mental well-being of older people especially.
