Cherry Grove residents send shoebox packages
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.
