Christmas Jumper Day celebrated
A fun and festive day was had by all who participated in the Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day at the Kingsway Care Centre.
A fantastic array of joyous jumpers were adorned, with a Christmas Sweepstake and Merry Music as entertainment.
A total of £143 was raised; this could pay for antibiotics for over 500 Children suffering with pneumonia or purchase 28 winter jackets for children in Syria.
A big thanks to all who participated.
Staff from PRI also joined in the fun on Christmas Jumper Day.
Handmade dolls house donated to children’s hospital
A beautiful handmade dolls house and furniture was donated to the Tayside Children’s Hospital.
Douglas Cooper who works at the Craigmill Skill Centre based at Strathmartine Hospital donated a handmade dolls house and furniture that was made by a former patient. The items are made from mostly wooden pallets.
The Craigmill Skill centre supports adults with learning disabilities to develop skills. They work with fully qualified people who support them and help them develop their skills.
As well as a industrial workshop, there is also a garden where they grow vegetable and plants. Members of the public can request items to be made for them and any money made is put back into the centre to continue supporting the programme. Produce and plants from the garden are also for sale.
Accepting the donation play specialist Yvonne West said, “We are very grateful for this amazing and beautiful donation. It must have taken a long time to make everything. The children are going to have a lot of fun playing with this.”
