Seasons greetings and goodies from Spire

The lovely administrative staff at Spire Fylde Coast Hospital have sent parcels of goodies for our happy house kids for Christmas.
Business manager Janet Shelmerdine and her daughter Lauren, an NHS advisor,  were at a Happy House evening hosted by theatre nurse, Joanne Reid, before she and her husband, Peter, left for their latest visit to our family in Watamu in November.
They had already donated clothes for Jo to take with her, but Janet said they felt that wasn't enough.
"We wanted to do a bit more," said Janet. 
They contacted Mama Sue to ask what they could send as extras for the children for Christmas.
They organised a collection amongst colleagues which brought in all kinds of craft items, colouring books, dvds, dressing up props and more.
The two big boxes they sent will bring lots of pleasure to our kids.
Thank you to everyone who donated for their kindness and for caring.
