There will be a wonderful array of quilts going for donation to the hospital next Wednesday when I meet up with Eddie of CHICS
Jan, of Lunch Lady Jan blog, who lives in Wiltshire sent me not only this beauty which will make a child so happy soon,
... she made not one but TWO!!
Thanks so much Jan! But wait for it... not only two quilts....
but super spotty lined tote bags to go with them!!
The children will have to make sure their Mum's don't pinch these for themselves!
The stack is getting bigger!
When I met up with Eddie who is support worker, for CHICS, based at Alder Hey Hospital, he asked me to post this message from him.
CHICS provides invaluable help, not only for the child, who is going through treatments, but for the whole the family, especially where there are siblings who also need support. Grandparents too!
Our support spreads to North Wales, Wirral, Merseyside and beyond.
The quilts will be a lovely gift as comfort and joy to the children who often bring such items in with them on each visit so, to have a special one made for them will be a real treasure.
This is another partnership for CHICS and every little piece of help is really valued, as these quilts will be. It is so wonderful and amazing that people far and wide care enough to find time to make and donate such wonderful gifts to these special children.
In my 20 years of experience it is heart warming to note that so many of these children go on in life to enter caring professions to become nurses, doctors, pharmacists and physiotherapists.
Thanks to all involved and Best Wishes
