Free postage to care homes this Christmas - back the campaign

Postage

Lib Dem campaigners are calling on the Royal Mail to allow people to send cards and parcels to loved ones in care homes for free for the rest of the year.

It comes as Irish postal service An Post has announced it will carry letters, large envelopes, packets and parcels up to 2kg addressed to residents in nursing and care homes for free until January 31.

Lib Dem Spokesperson for Cradley and Wollescote Ryan Priest said: "The Coronavirus outbreak has left many people who live in care homes cut off from contact with their loved ones. With lockdowns possible at Christmas time, it is going to be more important than ever for them to have something from their families if they can't see them in person."

"Introducing free postage for care homes into the New Year would be a big help for many people - and help keep family and friends in contact during what could be such a lonely time for so many."
