Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without our residents sharing it with some children. Their excitement is infectious and we have some truly special moments that our residents cherish, when little ones visit our home. We kicked off our Christmas 2019 celebrations with the 1st Bewdley Rainbows.
A visit from the 1st Bewdley Rainbows
It was delightful to share evening tea with the Rainbows and they sung Christmas carols for our residents so beautifully. They even brought gifts for our residents, which was so kind and visited some residents in their rooms. We love to hear their plans for Christmas and what is on their Christmas lists to Santa.
One Rainbow took her Rainbow promise: “I promise that I will do my best, to think about my beliefs and to be kind and helpful”. It was such a poignant moment and lovely to share this time with them all.
Many of our residents remember their girl guiding days, or time in the scouts. The evening conjured happy memories as well as making new memories. The Rainbows have promised a return visit – we can’t wait.
Pots of gold
As is now becoming a tradition, our brilliant knitters have been busy since Halloween making chocolate coin bags. They made 50 in total, with designs such as penguins, Father Christmas, snowmen and robins. They then filled the bags with gold chocolate coins and Sarah delivered them to St Anne’s Primary School. They were sold on reception and were all gone in a few days – raising £50 for our residents fund. A brilliant start to our Christmas fundraising. Thank you so much to St Anne’s for getting involved.
We have also just had our Christmas Fayre. A huge thank you to staff, residents, families and our local community for your donations and support. We will let you know the total raised soon – we are still adding it up!
