_"Our coat of Arms was cut by a relative using a piece of wood from an old wardrobe. The paints and brushes came from our gardener for our residents to use .The handyman fixed it to the wall and our residents cut the symbols and chose where they were going. Even our bookkeeper helped chose the sign for our location. It was a real team effort.”_

It’s lovely to hear the community building effects of this box.
