Good morning and welcome!
It's one of our Delivery Days today and I would like to thank every one that has sent me Sunshine Blankets and Shawls for Residents in Care Homes.
Today I visited Maple Dene Care Home which is situated in Moseley, Birmingham where I met Leisha the Home Manager, a member of Staff and Debbie one of the Residents
The Home is beautifully decorated and as soon as you walk through the door you instantly get a warm and welcoming feeling.
Today I took in 27 Sunshine Blankets and 12 Shawls and Leisha and Debbie absolutely loved them.
Over the past few days I have been getting the donations ready.
In fact Leisha asked Debbie to choose a Blanket while I was there and she chose one of Sally's Blankets called 'Sea and Sand'. Made in beautiful Yellow and Blue Crocheted Squares Debbie thought it was perfect for her lap.
I am always so proud of our Blankets and Shawls and I can honestly tell you that they really were admired. They will be used on Laps but also to be put on the beds in Residents' rooms. The Residents are encouraged to make their rooms personal to them so I know that once Blankets have been chosen they certainly will bring lots of smiles. I have promised to go back with more as soon as I have some more arrive.
My Husband Colin kindly agreed to giving me a hand with the Blankets.
Thanks Debbie for agreeing to have your photo taken!
In closing may I thank Leisha and Staff for accepting our Sunshine Blankets and Shawls today.
It was lovely to meet you all and hopefully I will pop in again very soon. Leisha and all at the Home would like to send a Big Thank you too!
Thanks to everyone that has sent me donations for the Home today.
I am always so grateful to each and everyone of you.
For your information we have now made 1227 Sunshine Blankets since January 2010
and the project was started in Memory of my Grandmother who lived to the fine age of 103.
