Thanks for visiting SIBOL today. I have wonderful news for you all.
Yesterday I rang Longmore Nursing Home near to where I live and I asked Zoe - The Manager if she would like a donation of 9 of our Sunshine Blankets. Zoe told me that she was short of Blankets and would be happy to receive them. I arranged to call in at 2.30pm, I had to drop my Daughter back at work first.
I am really pleased she came home for lunch because I asked if she would take a photo of me 'just for the record!' I had been busy all morning getting the Blankets ready to take with me.
9 of our beautiful Blankets all ready to go!
I went along to see Zoe and was invited into her office. I told her why I wanted to start the project because of my Grandmother and I also told her about YOU!
I had asked Zoe earlier if I could possibly have a few photos of her accepting the Blankets. I explained this was very important to me because I felt a certain obligation to you all for helping me with the project. I wanted you to see where the Blankets had found their new home. She couldn't have been more happier, so we walked through to the Conservatory part of the Home, to where the Christmas tree was standing! On the way I said hello to some of the Residents and Zoe handed a few of the Blankets out to Ladies who needed them. This really made my day as you can imagine because it was so nice to see who actually received them! It was nice to chat to the Residents because this made it all seem so worthwhile!
Here's a photo of Zoe and myself standing by the Christmas Tree!
