handmade gifts for hospital patients
For those who follow my Facebook Page you may already know that my grandmother is poorly in hospital at the moment after falling and breaking her hip! When visiting her in hospital we noticed that some of the elderly patients didn't receive any visitors and that some had come from Nursing Homes and possibly didn't have any family or friends who could visit.
My young daughters decided to make some lovely handmade cards to give to the ladies in the same ward room as their great grandmother and also some lovely gifts too! They each made a card for each patient including their great grandmother and we also went out to buy some boxes of chocolates and an imitation flower to give to them.
The Hospital staff were so touched by my girls' thoughtfulness and generosity and said how lovely it was for them to think of others! The photo below shows both my daughters busy designing each card by hand. I was so glad that through our crafts we were able to do a good deed for others. The ladies were so thankful to receive their gifts and it really made their day!
