This year many much-loved local events have been cancelled, postponed or reimagined in a virtual setting due to COVID-19 restrictions. One event that Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Knoxfield was unable to host was the Soup & Singing event, normally part of the annual Knox Seniors Festival.

To boost the spirits of local residents, Judy Bowman of Our Saviour’s coordinated surprise care packages for previous Soup & Singing participants. The packs included yummy snacks and treats, trinkets like photo keyrings and homemade bookmarks courtesy of church members, an inspirational postcard and a book of puzzles to keep residents entertained.

All the items were packaged nicely, hand delivered where possible under restrictions or otherwise sent by post.

A total surprise to recipients, many sent messages of thanks and appreciation to say how thrilled they were to receive the packs in their letterbox.

A reimagined Soup & Singing by Request was held for this year’s Knox Senior’s Festival. It was a fabulous event with the talented Brendan Scott performing requested songs. This virtual event was well received by the community who in the most part, adapted to Zoom remarkably easily.
