New Ross Standard - - PICTURES -

CHERRY GROVE nurs­ing home res­i­dents sent 56 shoe-boxes stuffed with hand knit­ted woolly clothes and other presents for chil­dren in east­ern Europe.

The res­i­dents al­ways love tak­ing part in the shoe­box ap­peal and this year ev­ery one got the knit­ting nee­dles out mak­ing scarves, hats and gloves, while an as­sort­ment of other gifts were also sourced.

Ac­tiv­i­ties Co-or­di­na­tor Marie Dobbs said: ‘All of the res­i­dents en­gaged in it and were de­lighted with the out­come. They in­cluded their knit­ted gar­ments, along with toys, tooth­brushes, games and more. I would like to ac­knowl­edge the res­i­dents, their fam­i­lies and friends and the staff here at Cherry Grove for all their work.’

Marie said the res­i­dents loved do­ing some­thing so pos­i­tive for chil­dren strug­gling to live lives of poverty in the tenth year the nurs­ing home has par­tic­i­pated in the shoe­box ap­peal. She thanked the nurs­ing home own­ers Tom and Siob­han Cum­mins for spon­sor­ing the boxes.
