As part of our OSJCT Voting campaign the residents at Skirbeck Court have embraced the chance to have their say regarding voting at the General Election on Thursday 7 May

Our Voting Champion Judith Arbon who is the Activity Co-ordinator at Skirbeck Court arranged for local candidates for Boston to come to the home to give a speech.

Before the candidates paid a visit the residents did not seem that interested however after the visits this has all changed with 70% of the residents now going to vote!

Residents have been encouraged to vote and can complete postal votes or alternatively transport is arranged to take residents to the polling station.  The home has also created a booth and ballot box in the home which residents are able to use as if they were going to vote, this again encourages conversation and gets everyone more interested in voting.  Read more about the voting campaign here.
